Bergenia stracheyi has pink flowers in the rarely seen species but is more generally seen as the white Bergenia stracheyi “Alba”. The flowers are held above pretty rounded leaves, much less coarse and invasive than most Bergenias, and worthy of a choice site in semi-shade.
Bergenia “Bressingham White” has pure white flowers which turn pink as they mature. The leaves are large and untidy, but the flowers are among the most attractive of the genus. Plant to edge a bed of lenten hellebores and intermingle with the little black-stemmed White wood aster (Aster divaricatus) which has white daisy-flowers in late summer.
