Rodger's Flower

Rodgersia pinnata 'Chocolate Wings' PPAF

Glossy textured foliage that changes into shades of chocolate, bronze, and dark green with pale pink blooms with a dark red eye.

With its bold, divided leaves this forms an exotic-looking clump that adds a unique foliage accent to any moist border. It produces big plumes of deep-pink flowers in early summer. Leaves begin deep cocoa bronze in spring, later changing to dark green. Plants prefer a moist, dappled shade setting, but will grow in full sun at the waterside or any other constantly moist site. Useful as an architectural specimen plant. Water during dry weather. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
