Latin Name: Astilbe japonica 'Red Sentinel'

Description: Astilbes are classic garden favourites, being relatively low maintenance, very shade tolerant, and attractive to pollinators. Each dark-crimson plume sits high above bright green dissected fern-like foliage, which ages to show hints of red throughout. Densely packed flowers cover the plumes, each opening individually which provides a long bloom period. This perennial is sure to provide an excellent show of colour in your shady garden areas for seasons to come.
