Magenta-pink flower clusters shoot skyward above tight mounds of glossy foliage in spring. Attractive evergreen leaves turn satiny chocolate-purple from late fall through winter foliage and flowers are a great accent in floral arrangements.

Bergenia Spring Fling is a low-maintenance perennial for bright shade. Particularly stunning when planted in groups. 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!
