Buy Rodgersia aesculifolia rodgersia: Attractive horse chestnut-like leaves

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, moist soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Towering spikes of star-shaped, white or pink flowers on large panicles up to 60cm long in midsummer. This striking, clump-forming perennial with its horse chestnut-like leaves looks great planted in the moist margins of a stream or pond. Best grown in a sheltered, shady spot where it contrasts well with the lacy texture of ferns.

  • Garden care: Add lots of well-rotted leaf mould when planting. Protect the young foliage against slug damage using beer traps or environmentally friendly slug pellets. Lift and divide congested colonies in early spring.

I saw this plant at the Chelsea show

I saw this plant at Chelsea. It was just what I wanted for near my pond but one night after I planted it the rabbits ate it to ground level! Great if you don't live in an open country area.
