Bergenia cordifolia 'Winterglut'
Heartleaf Bergenia, Pigsqueak
USDA Hardiness Zone 2-8
'Winterglut' gives a wonderful textural difference to a lightly shaded garden.
Rose-red blooms and big glossy leaves contrast nicely with other shade loving perennials. This is an early bloomer with fall foliage color!
Aquired the common name 'pigsqueak' because of the unusual sound made when a leaf is rubbed briskly between thumb and forefinger.
