Oh Auralie!  You have my deepest sympathy - know just how you feel as
have had this happen to me (not with Bergenia - never had that around
long enough for anything to eat it).   Proves they will eat anything,
even plants with thick, leathery leaves...they are just vermin on the
hoof in my view.  It's just sickening the damage they can do.  If
they don't eat it, they stomp on it.
