Plant details

Bergenias make excellent ground cover plants. They have bold, round leaves on rosette, clump-forming plants. This species produces 15cm to 20cm (6in to 8in) high flower stalks in spring that bear pink-white blooms. Plants come from mountainous areas of Kashmir and Afghanistan, so plant it in well-drained soil for the best results.
