Bergenia Cordifolia – Abendglut

Bergenia Cordifolia – Abendglut or also known as Heart-leaf Bergenia  is rhizomatous perennial. These Bergenias have very large leathery leaves that in colder climates change color to bronze red. The bell-shaped purple pink flowers also bloom on a bronze colored stem to a height of 1 or 2 feet.  Bergenias are excellent ground covers and look beautiful in borders or rock gardens.

Bergenias like sun or partial shade and plant them in moist, fertile well-drained soil. Dry soils tend to slow down the growth of these plants. Bergenia is a clump forming plant and will need to be divided when the center dies down. This plant is part of the Saxifragaceae family of plants.
