Astilbe arendsii 'Fanal'

Astilbe

♦ Zones:  3 - 8     Height:  12 - 18"     Exposure:  Full Shade to Part Shade ♦

Astilbe ‘Fanal’ is noted for having perhaps the darkest red flowers of any of the astilbes and for its bronze foliage.  It is a compact cultivar which typically forms a foliage mound with narrow panicles of dark crimson red flowers appearing on upright tall stems.  Foliage emerges bronze but tends to turn dark green with a reddish tint as the summer progresses.  Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade.  Prefers moist, organically rich soils, which should not be allowed to dry out.  Astilbes are mainstays of shade and woodland gardens.  No serious insect or disease problems.  Mass or group in shade gardens, woodland gardens and shaded areas of border fronts or cottage gardens.  Excellent ground cover or edging plant for shady areas.  Effective on pond or stream banks.
