To all - thanks for your inputs. The husband is still alive - just crossed 8 years 2 days ago.

AND THE BIG NEWS IS... that I have leaves sprouting!

So for all of you with weed-wacking husbands - plant a yard full of Rodgersia - as it appears it might be coming back!!

This makes me sick to think about for you. I have irises from my grandmother - and while they themselves are not special as a species, of course they are one of the more treasured flowers in my garden.

My rodgersia just appeared this week. They are about 8" high now. Mine totally disappear over the winter, and the first year, I forgot about even planting them. I love, love the foliage, (mine is the reddish/bronze) but by the time they get to a good size, it seems the season is over and then they have disappeared again.
I don't recall it so far getting to be about 48", but I think that is supposed to occur. I am in zone 5.

When I was at a certain stage in life and wasn't keen on mowing the lawn, I'd take out my frustration on cluster of drooping peonies planted by the previous owner. At the time the sight of the petals blasting out was quite gratifying, but now I look back upon it with regret.
