Astilbe Dark Leaf Red Baron

Pack of 3

(Code P525)

£5.99
A dense carpet of dark fern like foliage surrounding handsome feathery plumes of red flowers. Quite simply a gardener?s dream. Compact semi-dwarf varieties bred for their beautiful dark foliage, Astilbes are a quick growing and maintain a compact habit. They are free flowering and very hardy and pest resistant. Snails don?t like them, but their delicious fragrance will attract plenty of bees and other pollinators. Native to mountain ravines and woodlands in Asia and North America they are very tolerant of shade and thrive in damp locations, so are ideal for placing near a pond but equally are impressive and well suited to being grown in containers or as part of a border display. Height 50cm. First grade loose plants supplied.
