Rodgersia is a small genus in the Saxifragaceae family, all native to E-Asia. They are grown in gardens for their large, bronze coloured leaves, but flower rarely in Iceland. They grow in shady places along streams in their native habitats, so they need moist soil and semi-shade.

Propagation:


Division in spring or fall. 


Seed - sown in February - March

Seed not covered and stored at 15-18°C (60-65°F) until germination. 

Large foliage, bronze coloured at first. Prefers humus rich, moist soil.
