Red Astilbe adds whimsical texture to every space with fluffy, red spikes of flowers. Astilbes are wonderful shade perennials, known for their dark green, fernlike foliage and plume-like flowers. Flowers bloom mid-summer and make charming fresh or dried cut flowers.
Don’t let its appearance fool you; it’s low maintenance and easy to grow. No deadheading is required to enjoy the beautiful blooms. We even suggest leaving the spent flowers for winter interest! Try planting it in groupings between bold hostas, colorful heucheras, spring-flowering hellebore, or as an underplanting to hydrangeas.
