- This beautiful perennial forms a robust clump of lacy, deep blue-green, waxy foliage with red highlights. Foliage displays some burgundy fall color.
- Red stems carry panicles of deep salmon red buds which open to soft apricot pink flowers in early summer. Deep red seed panicles extend the season of interest through summer.
- This variety is considered to be an improvement over 'Peach Blossom'; it has more attractive foliage, stronger stems, and more colorful flowers.
Panicles of deep salmon red buds open as soft apricot pink flowers on red stems. Lacy, deep blue-green, waxy foliage with red highlights.
Astilbes are easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade; whereas these long-lived perennials prefer rich soil with light shade to filtered sun. Plants do need moist conditions, hot sun and dry soils cause crisp foliage. They will grow in full shade but will not be as floriferous. Compost mulch helps retain soil moisture and improves performance. Divide clumps when overcrowding occurs. Leave old foliage until early spring for winter protection and fertilize mid to late spring. If winter heave causes the crown to rise above soil level, gently press it back into the ground and apply organic matter around the plant.
