Evergreen Foliage
Sakura means cherry blossom in Japanese and the rosy-pink clusters of semi-double blooms in spring are as welcome as the treasured blossoming cherry trees. The thick waxy green foliage, each leaf measuring 8", transforms to deep plum tones in winter. Rub the leathery leaves between two fingers after a summer rain to discover why this lovely plant would have such an unusual common name, Pig Squeak. Kids of all ages love trying this! Stunning in mass.

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.
