Astilbe x arendsii

Life cycle perennial
Flowers red, white
Size 1 ft
Light part shade
Cultural notes moist garden soil

The two cultivars living in our gardens are red 'Fanal' and white 'Deutschland' - both with the attractive finely cut foliage and upright fluffy flower spikes. For us, 'Deutschland' is the larger one, mounding to about 18" tall with spikes above. 'Fanal' stays smaller, with foliage not exceeding 12". Both are valuable contributors to our late-spring garden.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
