Is it normal for bergenia leaves to die back come early winter? Or, are their leaves fully evergreen and should they look equally well in green all year round? Advice appreciated.



many of mine do die off and some leaves stay on all year. I think it depends on the variety to some extent. As long as the plants have some leaves there is nothing to worry about.

When I wash my car in the Spring I throw the water onto my nearby Bergenia, it encourages them to flower.
