Plant Type: Perennials

The Astilbe 'Fanal', is a colorful, feathery flower with deep red blooms and lacy deep green or bronze-green foliage. The foliage in spring is mahogany but as autumn approaches the blooms turn to shades of brown that look wonderful in winter snow scapes. The flowers contrast wonderfully with the dark green glossy foliage. Astilbe 'Fanal' blooms in mid summer and is 24" tall and a plant width of 18-24".

 


Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Do not allow Astilbe 'Fanal' to dry out. It is most successfully grown in a shady area but can tolerate some morning sun. A moist, well-drained area is key for this plant. In order to keep Astilbe looking good for the next year, do not cut it back in the winter, (the old foliage helps protect the plant from winter damage), but prune in early spring.
