Rodgersia ‘Bronze Peacock’ is my new favourite perennial. It has a long season of dramatic interest with stunning leaf shape, size and colour, flowers in the summer and seedheads in the autumn.It has large, leathery leaves that in spring have a gorgeous bronze colour that with metallic glints in a peacock like tail fan shape, that gradually fade to green as summer progresses. The pink flowers are held high on strong red stems in July and August and altogether makes a stunning addition to a mixed border. Once autumn comes the flowers turn to dark seedheads.

Although Rodgersia prefer a damp shady situation they will perform well in dappled shade too so some sun throughout the day should not be a problem. A dressing of leaf mulch in spring will help to keep moisture in the soil and suppress weeds.Ideal plant to grow even in a wet situation so perfect as a specimen on the edge of a pond or water garden. Leave enough room between plants to allow the plant to fully grow. Rodgersia can be propagated by division in spring by digging up and splitting the rhizomes and replanting.
