Bergenia emeiensis

A beautiful cliff dwelling Bergenia coming into cultivation very slowly and surely rather than with a bang.

Featured in Issue 9 (Volume 3 Issue 1) of PLANTS it is still only offered commercially by Blackthorn Nursery in Hampshire England in the UK RHS Plant Finder.

For a 'new' plant is is very old as it was originally collected 54 years ago but was not described as a new species until 1988.

It was introduced into the Uk from the collection by Mikinori Ogisu from his collections in Sichuan (Og 82003).

It is early flowering and like all bergenias the flowers are not frost hardy but this plant will make a magnificent pot specimen for the glasshouse if you cannot give it the well drained sheltered site it prefers - should you ever get your hands on one in the next five years!

Any other sources of seed or plants should be e-mailed to
