Vibrant scarlet-red plumes of Astilbe Red Sentinel sway above lacy medium forest green foliage. The mahoghany-red stems make a nice complement to the plume color. Airy plumes in summer move with the slightest breeze.
Astilbe are mainstays of shade and woodland gardens. They combine well with other moisture loving plants like Brunnera, Ligularia, Lobelia and Hosta.
