Astilbe ‘Erica’ is a tall hybrid cultivar which features open, narrow panicles of light heather pink flowers. These plants are mainstays of shade and woodland gardens. They are perennials which feature graceful, fern-like mounds of leaves, and tiny flowers densely packed on slender, upright stems.  Flowers bloom late spring to early summer.  Foliage emerges reddish bronze, but matures to dark green.  Easily grown in average, medium wet, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade.  Prefers moist, organically rich soils. Soils should not be allowed to dry out. If regularly watered, foliage will usually remain attractive throughout the growing season.  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.
