Member $6.95

Bergenias are one of the most underrated garden plants. The large green leaves make it an ideal ground cover for full sun or semi shade and they thrive in poor soils. `Winterglut' provides a welcome change from the common pink form with warm-red flowers standing tall above almost-black stems in spring. The foliage changes hue in autumn and winter bringing colour to your garden for three out of the four seasons.

PLANTS: PPRC
If you've got a cool spot that you can keep moist, then you should have a go at this one. A soft and felty rosette of leaves gives rise to a compact halo of violet flowers surrounding a silver globe. Unusual and striking, grow in a pot if you haven't got the spot to accommodate this treasure.
