Delicate feathery vivid pink plumes appear in midsummer above serrated bronze- tinted mid-green leaves. This Astilbe is one of the taller varieties. It's ideal for a moist bog garden or moist border and the foliage contrasts particularly well with plants like Rodgersia which have bolder coarse-textured leaves. Although it can grow in drier soils it does need to be in a shady spot.

  • Garden care:Newly planted astilbes need to be kept well watered until they are established. Lift and divide large clumps every three or four years discarding old woody rhizomes. Mulch with well-rotted organic matter in spring.
