Rodgersia 'Bronze Peacock'
Bronze Peacock' has the darkest foliage of any Rodgersia, the large, bronze fan leaves emerging in spring. The metallic-looking leaves have a thick, shiny appearance, giving interest to any garden situation. Great as a feature plant in a patio pot. The tall, pink flowers emerge in late spring to show the magnificent foliage colours to even greater effect.
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.
