Bergenia 'Bressingham Ruby' (Heartleaf Bergenia) Details

“Bressingham Ruby” is an herbaceous perennial grown for its lush foliage and pretty flowers. The glossy green leaves are large and will often develop maroon tones during the cooler months. The foliage is complemented with showy clusters of small, rose-red flowers through spring. It grows as a tidy clump to about 35 cm tall and 30 cm wide, performing best when planted in full sun or partial shade on a well-drained site. It is tolerant of moderate frost, cool climates, short periods of dry, and a wide range of soil conditions, except extreme wet or dry. In cooler areas the plants may die back during winter to regrow again when conditions warm. “Bressingham Ruby” is a very fashionable and hardy plant that is ideal for border planting or mass planting as a groundcover. It is often used in cottage gardens, planted around outdoor living areas, or maintained in a container.
