The beautiful emerging foliage of my Burgundy Astilbe. I love the rich color and texture of this variety. Astilbe are such a wonderful addition to the garden, and deliver 3 seasons of interest and are lovely in arrangements.
They can be grown in sun or shade as long you keep them in loamy moist soil. If you choose to grow them in sun or in a container, use lots of mulch to help keep the Roots cool and conserve moisture.
They can form thick clumps quickly but aren’t invasive, and since it’s such a beauty having clumps to divide and replant or share is a bonus!
