Nova™ 'Flame' Mukgenia is an intergeneric cross between Bergenia and Mukdenia. This amazing hybrid was accomplished by Terra Nova® Nurseries, with Bergenia fertilized by Mukdenia 'Crimson Fans'. Nova™ 'Flame' combines some of the best qualities of both parents, with the lustrous leathery leaf of Bergenia with the delicate and reddish margins of Mukdenia. Because the leaves are thicker than those of Mukdenia, they last longer into late fall, with their lovely color intensifying with the cooler temperatures. The flowers resemble those of Bergenia, with bright pink flower clumps on reddish stems in April and May.
