Pretty Amazing Pink Dragonfly Bergenia

  • Bright Pink Blooms All Spring
  • Foliage Turns Bronze in Autumn
  • Attracts Beneficial Pollinators
  • Deer and Rabbit Resistant

Pink Dragonfly Bergenia (Bergenia 'Pink Dragonfly'), has shiny cabbage-like leaves that have an unusually thick rubbery feel; it makes a pig squeak sound when you rub them between your fingers! These attractive large succulent round leaves are a dark green with red undersides.

Pink Dragonfly is a low growing perennial that has clusters of bright tubular pink flowers with darker pink centers on 15" thick red stems from early to late spring. The flowers provide long lasting cut blooms for bouquets or cut flowers.

The blooms attract hummingbirds and butterflies, but are resistant to deer and rabbits, so nothing can harm its endless beauty!

The 8" hight foliage is green through the growing season and turns a reddish-bronze hue in the fall. It may be evergreen in warmer climates. This foliage is easily divided in spring or early fall.

It prefers part sun in humus-rich, moist, well-drained soils, and can adapt to a variety of sun and soil conditions but dislikes hot, dry conditions.

Use Pink Dragonfly as a groundcover, edging, in small spaces, as a specimen plant, or in a container. Great for banks and slopes and underplantings. The Bergenia is certainly for gardeners who are looking for multiple seasons of interest!

Don't miss out on this easy, low maintenance plant. Add these to your landscape and you will never be bored! You will be glad you ordered yours today from our experts at Nature Hills!
