Useful and attractive in such difficult situations as dry shade, bergenias form dense colonies by means of short, thick rhizomes. Each shoot is a rosette of broadly oval, fleshy, stalked 5-6 inch shiny leaves with conspicuous veining, heavily tinged with red during the cooler months. Most are spring blooming, and some produce a second wave in summer and fall. 'Baby Doll' is notable for more densely packed shoots, smaller leaves and 12 inch stems of bright pink flowers. Sun or shade near the coast, part shade inland, most soils, moderate to (if shaded) occasional watering.
