|I live in south central illinois and I was wanting to line the side of my house with hostas. I was looking for a plant that would look nice with it and also look good in the winter. I saw the bergenia and I thought that might be a good idea, what do you think?

|Bergenia cordifolia is noted for its beautiful bronze fall foliage. Its leaves are rounded to heart-shaped and sometimes puckered, growing to about 12 inches. It bears pink to rose-red flowers on red stalks in late winter to early spring. I think it would make a beautiful companion to your hostas.
