Rodgersia is a majestic looking perennial for lovers of dramatic shapes and sizes. Rodgersia pinnata has palmately divided leaves composed of 5 large, broadly lance-shaped, and heavily veined, mid green leaflets with serrated margins. They grow along the leaf stalks in short but visible distances.

In early summer rise 50-90 cm tall stems with plume-like panicles of tiny, fragrant flowers. When the plants come from seeds the flower colour varies: white, beige, light rose or rich pink. The colours are stable only when propagated by dividing. When you look up close the individual tiny flowers are star-shaped and resemble those of stonecrop.

Thanks to its bold foliage that looks as if the plant escaped from rainforest jungle, this architectural plant ideally fits in exotic borders. It grows best in shaded and partially shaded locations since filtered sunlight never causes sun scorch which is usual on sunny locations with dry soil. It is a tuberous perennial forming a dense clump, not invading its surroundings. The soil should be humus-rich and loose, never compacted. Keep it constantly moist for best results. Fully hardy to approx. -30°C (USDA zone 5).
