Bergenia 'Bressingham White'. They're supposed to have pure white flowers, which is why I ordered them, but all of mine (bought from two different suppliers) are a pinky-white this year. They were pure white last year. Any ideas, please?



Well, one supplier does say that the flowers are white 'at first', aging to a whitish pink. If yours were pinky white when they first opened, it sounds like there's been some reversion - I can't find any threads on line with people talking about this though, but that doesn't mean it doesn't happen.

I have this, the flowers are white but the sepals (if I have that right) are a salmony pink. I have a photo on page 4 and they do look a little pinky:-) just looked again and some of them are pure white with pale green sepals it has spread quite a bit.
