First, for those of you who might be wondering where the heck the common name of this plant came from, Bergenia is commonly called "pig squeak" because of the noise produced by rubbing a leaf between thumb and finger, which makes a sound like a squeaking pig. Kind of funny, but, on the serious side, this is a wonderful evergreen flowering perennial for use as an accent or groundcover in sun or shade. It forms a lush patch of shiny, leathery, paddle-shaped leaves that are green in summer turning a handsome deep burgundy-red in fall and winter. In spring, thick fleshy bronze color stems rise above the foliage bearing clusters of bright rosy purple flowers, which are an early pollen source for beneficial pollinators. You might be happy to know this one is deer, rabbit and salt resistant. Get all the details below!
