On my May 30 visit, I was trying to second-guess Douglas Justice and what he would be writing about for June. I've never been successful at that before, but this time, everywhere I looked were Rodgersia, so I photographed several of those. And here's the June blog, all about Rodgersia. The thing is, I didn't find a single label. I'll bet they were down there, under all those leaves, plenty visible in the winter. It turns out I don't have any named photo for reference from previous years, probably because I didn't find any labels then either. So what follows are photos with my guesses as to what they are. As Douglas mentions, a lot of them are hybrids, but I'm not sure if I would know which they are. Corrections are welcome. This is the only one I'm certain of - seems to be a pretty good example of Rodgersia podophylla, duck-foot rodgersia, with palmately compound leaves. Botany Photo of the Day from December 23, 2007 show's Daniel Mosquin's close-up of the flowers. The petal-looking things are sepals - there are no petals on Rodgersia. This one seems to have lobed leaf tips like R. podophylla, but some of the leaves look more pinnate, so I'm guessing a hybrid. This has some lobed leaves, but the leaf texture is not as stiff, and there are pink flowers. So a hybrid of R. podophylla and R. aesculifolia? I'll post more in replies to this.
