 Garden Astilbe are a popular choice for shady gardens, where they perform well if given a rich, moist soil and regular watering. This compact selection has fluffy plumes in a bright magenta-pink or purple-red shade, over a mound of elegant, lacy green leaves. Great near the border edge, also thrives in tubs, or mixed containers. Fertilize in April and June. Excellent for cutting. Seed heads may be removed, or left on the plant for winter interest. Will tolerate full sun, in cool summer regions. Part of the Music series of Astilbe, bred in the Netherlands by Harry Verduin.
