Buy Rodgersia pinnata 'Chocolate Wing' rodgersia: Rich chocolate brown leaves in the spring

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: slow-to-establish
  • Flowering period: June and August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A big, bold perennial that will really add colour to the border. The leaves emerge in spring a rich chocolate colour, then turn to a greeny-bronze through the summer, before finally changing to chocolate and green in the autumn. Its clusters of tiny flowers appear in summer and also change colour as they mature from pale blush to rich burgundy. To get the best leaf colour you should grow it in a moist, sunny spot, but it is tolerant of some shade.

  • 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.

Great if you need a plant for a slightly more damp soil but still a sunny area and also a good foliage plant to give some structure.
