Product Details

Product Details

Some gardeners display this handsome variety massed as a groundcover—deer and rabbits shun its shiny but tough, leathery leaves—while others with limited geography choose containers. Magenta-pink flowers in early spring occasionally repeat in fall, when the leaves glow scarlet and bronze. 'Winterglut'

The small Asian genus Bergenia provides one of the most distinctive and attractive foliage plants for partial shade. Plants are extremely hardy and long-lived when they get gritty, well-drained soil and protection from afternoon sun, and a sizable cluster offers a handsome pool of texture and color through the season. The absolute best value is secured in situations where the foliage remains evergreen through the winter. In our experience, that means Zone 6 and warmer, or a spot in colder areas where a microclimate approximates these conditions.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Lovely Plants

Although my three plants arrived in a crushed box, they were perfectly fine. I have them in a very large pot and they are thriving. Winter Glow is supposed to be okay in my USDA Zone of 8B (they will get only morning sun), so if they survive the summer heat here, I'll be extra happy! They are lovely plants.

Bergenia blooms in April–May with clusters of pink flowers held above large, glossy, round to heart-shaped leaves. Plant is evergreen in zones 6 and warmer; in colder areas it can be sited in a sheltered spot to provide protection. Bergenia are rarely damaged by deer.

Suggested use: Ideal for any spot offering part shade such as a woodland garden.

Culture: Part shade (3–6 hours direct sun). Well-drained, open, gritty soil. Do not fertilize first year after planting; in subsequent years, a very light application of 10-10-10 may be given in early spring. Plants are seldom bothered by any pests or diseases.
