Rodgersias are striking plants for a damp border in light shade. Most large, summer-flowering plants for a damp soil need full sun. This variety has good foliage with large, deep green, textured leaves that have a distinctive pinkish-bronze colouring when young. In mid-summer, tall pyramidal plumes of feathery pink flowers are held well above the foliage. The plants are useful for growing towards the back of a moist border or behind a pond, where they are partly shaded by other tall plants. The Royal Horticltural Society have given it their Award of Garden Merit (AGM), in recognition of its outstanding excellence.
