Bergenia ‘Rosi Klose’
at Digging Dog
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
Bergenia ‘Rosi Klose’
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.
Size: 12" high x 15" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.
In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden! Digging Dog's mid March 2017 Newsletter Link
