Rodgersia p. 'Bronze Peacock'

Bronze Peacock has some of the darkest foliage in Rodgersia adding a lot of drama to moist, part-shade locations. Leaves emerge a deep bronze color that is quite unique. Late spring and summer brings fun pink plumes - ooo la la! Site it in a location where it won't dry out and enjoy.

How to Plant
CowPots are made from composted cow manure. As the pot decomposes, it feeds the roots of the plant helping it get off to a great start. We like to say the perennials think they're delicious and nutritious! :-)
You will plant the pot along with the plant. No need to put holes in the pot or remove the bottom. It decomposes faster than all other non-plastic pot options and the roots easily push through.
Place the plant in the hole so that the top of the soil in the pot matches the soil line in the garden. Ensure that soil is pressed against the pot on all sides and the bottom. Keep the area inside and outside the pot moist (but not soggy) for 3 to 4 weeks until the plant is established.
We ship to the 48 continental US states only.
Spring shipping begins in April and continues until temperatures make shipping prohibitive (typically late June through August). Fall shipping begins in September through mid-October. Shipping may be held up due to cold or hot temperatures, or extreme wet conditions.
Check to see that our email address doesn't get sent to your spam folder. Not just because we're a lot of fun to hear from, but so your shipping notification and tracking info comes through, too. :-)
