This grower is sure of this plant identification.
With its bold, divided leaves Rodgersia pinnata forms an exotic-looking clump that adds a unique foliage accent to any moist border. Large airy plumes of soft-pink to ivory flowers appear in early to mid-summer, and these are useful for cutting or even drying. Plants prefer a moist, dappled shade setting, but will grow in full sun at the waterside. Useful as a bold, architectural specimen plant. Clumps seldom need dividing, but this may be done in early spring.
Rodgersia pinnata. This is a clump-forming plant, with bold dark green leaves arranged in pairs. There are star-shaped, yellow- white, pink or red flowers which are borne in panicles on reddish green stems in mid to late summer.
They prefer moist soil at the edge of a pond or in a bog garden with sun or partial-shade. They grow well in a site sheltered from strong winds.
Suitable for pond sides.
