I've killed more bergenias than Firestone has recalled tires, so we were really excited when we heard that plant breeder Robin White of the UK was now using the heat-loving Chinese Bergenia emeiensis in his breeding program. B. 'Apple Blossom' (B. emeiensis x B. 'Britton') makes a large, glossy, evergreen rosette typical of other bergenias. In spring, the clumps are topped with amazing 18" tall, reddish flower spikes of large, 1.5", light pink bells. This is a stunner and one that we can actually grow in regions with warm summers...hurrah!
