Rodgersia 'Pearly White'
With its bold, divided leaves, this forms an exotic-looking clump that adds a unique foliage accent to any moist border. Large, airy plumes of pearly white flowers appear in early to mid summer, and these are useful for cutting or even drying. A bold, architectural, specimen plant. Foliage first emerging in spring takes on a bronze cast.
Keep well watered until firmly established. Plant into any good garden soil, best in damp areas. This plant will die down in winter to regrow in spring.
Water thoroughly, or stand pot in a container of water for half an hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in the hole so that the root ball is level with the surrounding ground and refill, firming if necessary. Keep well watered in dry weather. Feed in spring with a good, general fertiliser.
