Rodgersia

Native to China and Japan, this spectacular genus will grow in ordinary garden soil, but give it a rich moist home along a pond, stream or marshy area and it will thrive. Rodgersias are fine structural specimens characterized by brownish black fleshy rhizomes, which remain visible through winter. The numerous unpetaled flowers, colored by intriguing creamy salmon sepals and stamens, are borne on large panicles, and when in bud look almost like miniature cauliflowers. And, be warned! The textured, dark green leaves can spread to a foot across, so be sure to provide these plants with plenty of space.

Rodgersia pinnata ‘Chocolate Wings’ (P-2128)

Each 12.75

AVAILABLE JUNE 2021

‘Chocolate Wings’s grace note is the dynamic varying hues that saturate its thick king-size foliage. First emerging in rich purplish chocolate tones, then morphing from green to bronze, the heavily veined 5-parted leaves offer a rubescent fall finale and later welcome winter with warm brown shades. This walloping Marco van Noort introduction volunteers additional springtime enticements: petite dark pink flowers carried on tall arching stems. (PPAF)

Blooms June–mid August

Size: 2' 0" – 3-1/2' high x 2' 0" – 3' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 5.

PLEASE READ THIS NOTICE PRIOR TO PLACING YOUR ORDER!

Due to the unprecedented influx of orders, phone calls and emails that we have been receiving, our small family run business of not quite a dozen people, is sadly behind at this time. The combination of extremely cold weather in January and February, as well as vendor plant shortages and unanticipated delays, are adding to our difficulty of assigning ship dates in a timely fashion. Please know our team is working diligently to catch up. Orders are currently taking up to 5 weeks to review. To be as fair as possible to our valued customers, we are processing orders in the order they were received. We appreciate your patience and hope that you can accept our heartfelt apology for any inconvenience.
