Well, the snow put paid to the judging of winter foliage of bergenias at Wisley this week. Here they are, entirely covered with snow! There's over three hundred bergenias, in over a hundred species and varieties there, but not much to assess at the moment
The judges will be back to look them over - and see how their colourful evergreen foliage has survived the snow - later in the winter.
For more Wisley trials snow pictures, take a look at my Transatlantic Plantsman blog.
