Bergenia ‘Solar Flare’


This plant is no longer for sale directly from TERRA NOVA® Nurseries. However, it may still be available through one of our Licensees or Retail Sources.


A twist on a classic garden perennial. Bold, evergreen leaves have a cream edged border which turns brilliant shrimp-pink during the winter months. Excellent winter container plant topped with pink flowers in the spring. Color appears on spring and new growth fading to green in late summer. 'Solar Flare' came out of 'Rotblum' which grows as well in the South as in the Northwest.
