Common Name: “Pig Squeak”

(Pig Squeak) Bergenia Dragonfly™ 'Sakura' 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. In the winter, the leaves of this evergreen perennial turn to a deep purple black color. This evergreen has clusters of bright pink flowers double to semi double from early to late spring that will provide long lasting cut blooms for bouquets. The flowers remind you of tight clusters of cherry blossoms, 'Sakura' in Japanese, means cherry blossom. Dragonfly™ 'Sakura' is a versatile plant that is drought tolerant, use it as a groundcover, edging, or container gardening. Enjoy this deer resistant plant in your gardens!
