Bergenia 'Bressingham White'
Nice texture with rather cheerful white-ish flowers. The name would suggest that the flowers are pure white. We find they nearly always have a slightly pink tinge.
Long lived, evergreen, slowly creeping ground cover either in the open or under trees. The leaves redden in the winter and this will be most pronounced on poor soils. Remove flower heads after flowering and any dead leaves. If planted under deciduous trees clear off the leaves in autumn to prevent rotting.
Full sun to partial shade. Height and spread 1ft x 1ft.
Propagated by micropropagation
IF IT HAS A GREEN TRAFFIC LIGHT
Hardy anywhere in Britain below approximately 1000ft (300m)

General Point about Plant Hardiness: The commonly held belief that it's better to 'plant small' is perfectly true with herbaceous plants, but not necessarily true with woody plants. They need some 'wood' on them to survive severe cold - so plants of marginal hardiness in very cold areas should really be planted LARGER, rather than smaller, wherever possible.
