Peppermint Patty Pigsqueak Bergenia Care
Peppermint Patty Pigsqueak Bergenia can tolerate both sun and shade; however, it is happiest in partial shade.

A general-purpose, slow-release fertilizer applied in the spring will help support flowering and foliage production.
Deadheading spent flower stalks will help keep a tidy appearance. In late winter, simply cut back the old, tattered foliage before new growth emerges.
