Rodgersia aesculifolia Fingerleaf Rodgersia

Available Spring 2024


Rodgersia aesculifolia has elongated clusters of small fragrant ivory to pink flowers appearing on tall arched stems that rise above the large showy foliage. This plant is grown mostly for its foliage with its distinctive large palmately lobed, strong veined very serrated leaves. 

Rodgersia is named after Rear-Admiral John Rodgers (1812-1882), an American naval officer who commanded a Pacific expedition (1852-1856), during which he encountered this species.  

Also known as Fingerleaf Rodgersia, it prefers partial to full shade and moist, organic rich or clay soil. It tolerates very wet conditions but leaf edges will turn brown in drought. It thrives in moist woodland gardens, bog gardens, water gardens, or along stream banks.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.
