Product Details

Plant Description

A new variety to the nursery, this Astilbe is spectacular with chocolate reddish stems that hold large dense fluffy dark pink plumes. It has attractive burgundy green foliage (darkening with age) and looks good even without being in flower. Ideal for shady spots in your garden. Flowering from mid summer. Height can reach up to 1.2m with flower heads.

Where to Plant

Partial shade to dapple shade is best, likes moist soil. (Too much shade and they will not flower as well). Can tolerate full sun if soil is constantly moist. If soil becomes dry in hot summers, some mulch (Bark) around the plant will help keep moisture in the soil. Additional watering will also be required.

Plant Care

Low maintenance plant, dies down naturally in winter. Spent flower heads can either be removed or left to dry. The dried seed heads give interest through the latter part of the season. Hardy perennial, new growth will re appear in the spring. Clump forming, advisable to divide after four years to keep it flowering well. (A general rule for all Astilbes and other clump forming perennials).
