I've grown a variegated Rogersia before, can't for the life of me remember its varietal name, but it had leaves similar to this only variegated cream. And that I bought at a rare plant nursery down in Kent years ago, so I don't think its exactly rare, but let's say uncommon. They like damp soil conditions, that I do know.
Andy: Yes, we are allowed to use Google - the Images bit on the left is invaluable when you're trying to ID, although its not infallible, you have to know what you're looking for and at. And given that the vast majority of RHS info is now online, I dunno what planet thingumybob's on, I reckon he should keep taking the tablets....

Oh I know you were being facetious, Andy, I just wanted to say all that for everyone else's benefit, lol! Your response on that post did make me laugh out loud - in my family its a bit ruder, because its 'don't let the door hit you on the way out'.
