Heartleaf Bergenia Growing and Maintenance Tips
Bergenia will tolerate a wide range of soils, lighting and moisture conditions, but grows best in partial sun, and moist, rich, humus soil. Bergenia are evergreen, so remove only damaged and tattered foliage as necessary. They can be affected by vine weevil, so applying beneficial nematodes twice a year may be required.
