Just a quick look at this stunning winter colour on bergenia Wintermarchen.

It was recommended to me by Beth Chatto gardens as a good do-er for a winter window box. Its ruby leaves at this time of year are a real blast of cheer, to be followed later by pink flowers. This is doing its thing in a north-facing position here in my garden near Edinburgh, and it doesn’t mind the Scottish winter at all.

Love this plant!

The other plants here are cyclamen coum and a hebe, to be joined later by muscari and the tiny tulip Heart’s Delight.
