9cm pot

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of Growth: slow-growing

    The dense, fluffy plumes of this recently introduced astilbe are held on chocolate-flushed stems, and bear dark pink buds that open to hot pink flowers in midsummer. These rise above handsome mounds of burgundy-green foliage, so the overall effect is very showy and colourful.

  • Garden care: Ensure that newly planted astilbes are kept well watered until they are established. Lift and divide large clumps every three or four years in late winter or early spring, discarding ol, woody rhizomes.
