In a Nutshell:

Bergenia (also called heart-leaved bergenia) is a clump-forming perennial which is primarily grown as a ground cover.
* Features large rosettes of leathery, glossy, toothed, rounded, dark green leaves (to 10" long by 8" wide) which are heart-shaped at the base. Leaves typically form a thick, slowly-spreading clump of foliage to 12" tall.
* Foliage turns purplish-bronze in winter. Small dark pink flowers in dense panicles appear within or above the foliage on stout stalks to 16" tall in April.
* Leaves are often used in floral arrangements.
* Also commonly called pig squeak because of the noise produced by rubbing a leaf between thumb and finger. more...
