The leaves of Rodgersia podophylla emerge a beautiful bronze colour and gradually turn greener as they unfold. They never entirely loose their bronzy sheen except at the very end of the season. Here their greenish bronze contrasts wonderfully with the shadows and the dark background. This fully hardy herbaceous perennial fully contributes to the exotic flavour of the 'rainforest' area of the garden. There are several species of Rodgersia of which we have just a few.
