Rodgersias are extremely handsome plants primarily grown for their foliage. They are special plants perfectly suited for the wild garden, the edge of the water garden, or the shade garden. They do well in open shade under tall trees.

Rodgersia’s bold foliage and panicles of flowers make a dramatic addition to moist or wet areas of the garden. It thrives in full sun to dappled shade. Some varieties can be grown in USDA Zones 3, 4, 8 and 9.
