I don't get people who don't like bergenias (vuorenkilpi in Finnish). They are easy, look good and green in both summer and winter. The only thing you need to do is to take off any damaged leaves in the spring and the plant looks great for the rest of the year. It spreads easly but is not invasive, its flowers are a delight in spring and it might flower again if the conditions are right. If something is easy, it is not bad - get over it and start using bergenias in your garden immediately!
