New Colored Bergenia
by Charlie Nardozzi
Bergenia is a beautiful, low-growing perennial with dark green or burgundy evergreen leaves and vibrant pink flowers in spring. Now, there is a new selection that adds even more color to this popular perennial.
Lunar Glow starts off spring with bright, creamy yellow leaves; the foliage keeps its golden color until fall, when it turns an attractive burgundy red. The leaves contrast nicely with the pink flowers. Lunar Glow bergenia is hardy in USDA zones 4 to 9, grows well in part shade on well-drained soil, and looks best as a massed planting along a border or on a bank.
