Bergenia ‘Rosi Klose’
at Digging Dog

Bergenia

Pigsqueak

You can experience how this no-trouble rhizomatous ground cover earned its common name if, following a rain, you rub a leaf between your fingers—but it is Bergenia’s fine firm foliage mass and Saxifrage-like, waxy flowers that justifies its presence in the garden. With bold, rounded outlines, the great, glossy, and nearly evergreen, rich green leaves are a handsome backdrop for dense heads of lovely spring blooms that rise above the cabbagelike rosette on stalwart, red-tinted stems.

In winter, leaves become tinged with burgundy and are most welcome in holiday arrangements. Bergenia endures neglect, poor soil and some drought, but performs best in part shade.

Highly regarded by British plantswoman Beth Chatto for their lovely presentation, the salmon-tinged rosy pink Hyacinth-like floral bells ring in spring with open flared mouths above a tight-knit smaller-sized foundation of gleaming spoon-shaped foliage. ‘Rosi Klose’s profuse uniquely hued blooms and verdant trouble-free disposition can enhance the rockery, a stone wall or pond’s edge.

Blooms April–May

Size: 12" high x 15" wide; hardy to zone 4.
