Bergenia ‘Spring Fling’
Witness some of the most exciting work done with the easiest to grow perennial ever! 'Spring Fling' forms a large, fairly tight and upright plant that blooms so heavily, it could be mistaken as an Azalea from a distance. It has branched flowering stems, which equals more flowers. 'Spring Fling's' foliage turns satiny purple-black in the fall and winter and is a gorgeous foil for the shocking, magenta-pink flowers.
