The glossy green leaves of the bergenia look outstanding all year long. In fall they take on a magnificent reddish-bronze hue. The thick, leathery foliage is semi-evergreen and squeaks when rubbed between your fingers, giving this plant the common name of pigsqueak. The small pink, rose or white blooms appear on sturdy stocks in spring are in contrast to the big leaves on this groundcover.
