Winter Glow Bergenia
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 waxy Saxifraga-like flowers that justify 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 delightful spring blooms that rise above the cabbage-looking 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.
Bergenia cordifolia ‘Winterglut’ (P-1912)
This superb prismatic cultivar claims its name with striking, red-painted winter foliage that chases the chill from a December day and warms a holiday wreath. The substantial slow-spreading rosettes of beefy, heart-style polished leaves launch showy magenta-red flowers perched on steadfast stalks. Vaunting color aplenty, nearly 4-season appeal and an adaptable valiant bearing, ‘Winter Glow’ can be added to the rockery or a border’s front lines.
Size: 18" high x 15" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
