Astilbe - red, delivers delicate, feathery red plumes in midsummer above 60cm tall, serrated, bronze- tinted, mid-green leaves. It's ideal , especially when planted in groups, for a bog garden, damp border or pool edge and looks great combined with the foliage of other moisture loving plants such as Rodgers which have bolder, coarse-textured leaves. Preferring a sunny spot in moist soil, it will not only fill that bare spot which can be a difficult to grow anything in, but make it something you enjoy looking at.
