New Icon 

Astilbe 'Radius' (False Spirea)

Thumbnail Photo

A large, impressive looking selection with great appeal! This outstanding new hybrid forms a large, robust clump similar to chinensis types but with more refined (not coarse) green foliage. The new foliage has a pretty reddish copper cast in the springtime. Leafy, burgundy red scapes carry triangular plumes of burgundy red buds which open to bright red flowers in early to midsummer.
