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
