Flowers: June-July.  Plant in moist soil in part shade.  HxS 1mx1m

Also known as Rodgersia ‘Hercules’, this recent introduction has clear, rose pink flowers from dark pink buds, on 1m (3ft) spikes in mid summer.  The architectural leaves are bronze when they open and become glossy green and red-flushed later in the season. Rodgersia are best placed in bog or waterside locations, out of direct sunlight which can burn the foliage in hot summers.  Pest and disease resistant.  Not as tall as many other cultivars and perhaps suited to the smaller garden where it will give a good vertical accent.

Care & Maintenance.

Deciduous, so it dies back completely in autumn and requires only the removal of the old foliage and stems in spring.  Propagate by careful division of the rhizome in spring.
