Large polished deep green leaves turn to burnished maroon in autumn, providing year round interest. Rosy-red flower clusters rise above the shiny foliage in spring. Bressingham Ruby is a valuable foliage plant for use as a groundcover or in the border. Most effective when planted en masse. Patented.
Bergenia are valued for attractive foliage and flowers. Leathery, waxed leaves add structure, texture and changing color. A good performer even in difficult sites. Slowly and reliably fills in. Clusters of blooms are framed by foliage nicely.
No special care needed. Clean up in spring if needed. Truly maintenance free. Divide in spring every 3-4 years or so when clump opens up in center. Does not like "wet feet".
