The Fingerleaf Rodgersia is a large, imposing plant that will stand out,
no matter where you plant it in your garden.
Rodgersias produce their long lasting, fluffy plumes of tiny, star shaped, light pink or white flowers beginning in late spring and continuing until mid summer.
The deeply textured foliage resembles that of a Chestnut tree.
Fans of 5-7 bright green leaves unfurl on top of stout, hairy stalks in early spring, then die back each winter.
After a few years, your Rodgersia will form a dense three foot clump that will renew itself every year.

Growing Requirements for Fingerleaf Rodgersias

Rodgersia aesculifolia are moisture loving plants that will stand up to wet soils and shaded situations making them an excellent addition to your bog garden or woodland setting.
They should be grown in moist, compost rich soil, and planted where they will receive shade for most of the day. They can tolerate full sun in cooler regions.
Fingerleaf Rodgersia plants are hardy in USDA zones 5-9.

Propagating Rodgersia Plants

After a few years Rodgersias develop large clumps that will need dividing.
Division of this plant should be done in early Spring.

Seeds should be sown in the fall, where they are to grow in the garden.
