When Terra Nova Nurseries of Oregon introduced this particular variety, the blooms reminded them of the cherry blossoms in Japan, hence the name ‘Sakura’. The plant forms a low clump of green leaves which turn to a rich plum red in winter, and it grows to about 15 inches high. The flowers are a vivid shade of bright pink and come in generous clusters of double and semi-double blooms. Like most Bergenias, not only is it beautiful en masse in the landscape, but it can be used in containers, in the front of a border between shrubs, or in a mixed planting bed. It also makes a lovely cut flower. Tolerates a wide range of soil conditions, in both sun or part shade. Easily divided in spring or early fall. [bergenia sakura 1.jfif]
