Rodgersia pinnata 'Chocolate wing' Overview

Large heads of small deep pink and white flowers on elegant, branching stems give this plant a 'Japanese' look in late Spring/early Summer. Red-brown foliage greens up later but retains some red blush making it distinctive throughout the season. Both flowers and leaves are borne on arching red-tinged stems.
