Sculptural bronze leaves of Rodgersia

Loving how well the sculptural bronze leaves of this Rodgersia podophylla 'Braunlaub' work with the Physocarpus opulifolius 'Diabolo' in the background. The stunning green of the new shuttlecock ferns and the neat leaves of Astrantia major are the perfect companions for this natural work of art. 

A great place to see Rodgersias in their full glory is in the streamside gadren at RHS Harlow Carr.  The show of candelabra Primulas here is also a sight not to be missed, in June.
