Astilbe 'Amber Moon' (False Spirea)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

This Astilbe is useful for brightening up the shade garden as well as providing beautiful long-stemmed flowers for fresh and dried bouquets. The foliage emerges bright chartreuse yellow in spring with a tinge of red pigment in the newest leaves. It provides a bright spot of color and lacy texture to the shade garden in spring and then greens up a bit by late summer. Very tall, strong, blush red stems carry rose pink flower panicles in midsummer. �

Needs fertile soil, and consistant moisture. Plant with dark leafed hostas, ferns, and Ligularia Marie Crawford
