Welcome Spring Blossoms
Long-lived and heavy flowering, bright rose flower clusters on rosy-red stems stand above its rosette of glossy cabbage-like foliage. Moss-green leaves deepen in the winter with a burgundy halo and remain evergreen in milder climates. The sturdy foliage is a nice filler in cut flower bouquets. Pig Squeak will tolerate a wide range of soil conditions and performs well in dappled sun or shade. Rub the leathery leaves of Bergenia Vintage™ Rose between two fingers after a summer rain to discover why this lovely perennial would have such an unusual common name, Pig Squeak. Kids of all ages love trying this!

Bergenia General Information

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. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Bergenia Plant Care

No special care needed. Clean up in spring. Foliage is mostly evergreen but snip off any winter-damaged foliage and the occasional brown leaves in summer. Do not cut back plant in fall as Bergenia needs the leaves for food to survive the winter. If needed, divide in spring every 3-4 years. Does not like wet feet.
