DEER-RESISTANT PLANT SPOTLIGHT

'Winter Glow'

Pigsqueak

Bergenia

A great shade plant for year-round interest. Bergenia, or pigsqueak, has thick, rubbery leaves that really do squeak when you rub them between your fingers. The leaves turn lovely shades of red and orange and last through the winter. In spring, nodding clusters of pink flowers appear on spikes.
