(Pig Squeak) Bergenia Winter Glow is sure to be noticed with its shiny, cabbage-like leaves that have an unusually thick rubbery feel, which makes a pig squeak sound when rubbed between your fingers. This evergreen has clusters of bright red flowers from early to late spring that will provide long lasting cut blooms for bouquets. During the fall and winter months the leaves of Winter Glow turn a reddish-bronze hue and return to green in the spring. This plant is considered an improvement over Bergenia Rotblum and the climate in Michigan is conducive for possible reblooming in the fall. A versatile plant for use as a groundcover, edging, or container gardening.
