Astilbe arendsii 'Razzle Dazzle'

False Spirea

Magenta, good texture! Attracts Butterflies and Hummingbirds! 

Clump-forming perennials which feature graceful, fern-like mounds, usually with sharply toothed leaflets, and tiny flowers densely packed onto erect, often arching, plume-like flower panicles, rising above the foliage on slender, upright stems, producing a dense, almost cloud effect, that appears to shimmer in the wind.

A compact variety. Upright stems with deep magenta plumes of flowers rise from a mound of elegant, lacy green leaves. Astilbe does not like sunny locations so excellent for semi or full shade locations with plenty of organic matter and moisture. Use a good quality compost and feed regularly as a hungry plant is a poor performer. 

Fantastic new hybrid that displays good vigor and stays very compact; cross between Arendsii and Chinensis. Beautiful purplish, dark-rose plumes with dark green foliage.

Needs regular watering - weekly, or more often in extreme heat.
