Bergenia - Pig Squeak
Pink Flowers and Fall Color
The Bergenia 'Pig Squeak', Bergenia cordifolia, also known as Bay Doll, is a must to any garden. With its green foliage in the spring, turning and outstanding burgundy cabbage-like foliage in the fall, drought tolerance, rosettte low growth, and glossy, thick leaves, it adds color and interest to any garden.
Soft pink flowers develop in April on 15" stalks after the foliage has matured to 8” in height with a plant spread of 18-24”.
‘Bergenia’ Cordifolia will do well in part shade with some morning sun in average moist to well-drained areas, although they prefer light shade in hot areas.
‘Bergenia’ works great in rock gardens, as a border, and provides strong contrast for most any other plant, especially Ferns and Dicentra.
The plant is useful as a ground cover, growing slowly in dry areas and rapidly in constantly wet spots.
This versatile perennial makes an excellent container plant or companion under shrubs or trees. It is deer and rabbit resistant.
