I think this is Rodgersia but not sure as it was given to me as a plant division by a friend.

Thanks Rose, thats interesting yours in the bog garden mine in partial shade in quite dry soil.
Glad you like the garden but as I said in last blog I really must do something with the path I hate it.

I've only really noticed Aruncus this year in other people's gardens. I wonder if I thought it was Astilbe in the past....it's similar isn't it, but huge! Lovely!

I do like it Karen, but I think this is getting too large now its perhaps best for very large gardens at back of border. It can look quite messy once its finished flowering the leaves go very brown and being so large look quite a mess.

Oh, that's a shame. Perhaps you could do better then Stroller!

I find the best thing to do with mine is to cut it back. I don't cut mine hard back while the leaves are still looking good but then at the point where it is looking grotty i do.
