Gardeners' Notes:

Love this plant! A small bergenia with more colors than I have seen at a time on any other cultivar. New foliage can be creamy yellow or yellow green, maturing to greens and reds. Have seen leaves that are half cream and half green. Really interesting; and I have not even had flowers yet!

I saw this at a Nursery about 20 miles away, but didn't buy it...I kept thinking about it and finally called to be sure that they still had it and bought both the ones they had in stock...I just had to have it.
