    Bergenia? Are you sure you don't mean Begonia?

    From my experience, Bergenia c. can be both cut back and cuttings replanted.

    Start new plants by cuttings , removing almost all the large foliage, and planting in similar soil conditions, do not let them dry out until once established.

    I find that an acidic soil with partial shade works for me.

    Very easy to do. Good luck.
