Think of Rodgersia as "Astilbe's big brother". This bold addition to moist gardens has a double barreled impact. Striking, coarsely textured foliage is attractive throughout the growing season, and contrasts well with plants such as Hostas. In early summer, tall candelabra like spires of tiny fragrant pinkish flowers without true petals, rise above it all, to complete a picture of rugged elegance.
