"Rodgersia pinnata is a species of flowering plant in the family Saxifragaceae, native to the Sichuan and Yunnan provinces of China. It is a robust, herbaceous perennial growing to 120 cm (47 in) tall by 75 cm (30 in) broad, with textured palmate/pinnate leaves up to 90 cm (35 in) long, with 5-9 leaflets. 60 cm (24 in) erect panicles made up of tiny, star-shaped flowers, are borne on reddish green stems in summer. The flowers may be white, cream, pink or red.

R. pinnata is useful as an ornamental groundcover plant for the margins of streams or ponds."
