Bergenia 'Sakura'

Common Name: Heartleaf Bergenia, Pigsqueak

This selection of Bergenia blew us away with its intense pink flowers—a bold color that can be easily spotted from a distance. Individual flowers range from light pink to medium pink, with dramatic dark pink veining. Flowers lighten in intensity with age, but still have magnificent color. Compared to the flowers of B. purpurea, the flowers of ’Sakura’ measure nearly four times as big. Oval-shaped, thick green leaves measure about 8 inches above the ground, with large flower clusters starting just above the foliage.

Sakura is the Japanese word for cherry blossoms.

Bergenias are reliable evergreen perennials and are rabbit and deer resistant.
