Rodgersia pinnata

Height: Medium

Planting Zone: 1

Rodgersia is grown mainly for the attractive foliage, which can be green or bronze in colour. Flowers are borne above the leaves in mid summer, creamy white to pink. An architectural plant, Rodgersia grows to about 90cm in height. The plant requires moist conditions and makes an excellent backdrop to other plants. It needs to be sheltered from strong winds. This plant is also suitable for the Pondside/Bog garden. Place around the edge of a pond, providing soil is damp and not waterlogged. Alternatively plant in damp areas of the garden.
