Astilbe 'Red Sentinel'
Latin Name: Astilbe x arendsii 'Red Sentinel'
Striking bright red plumes; rising above glossy leaves that emerge a rich bronze in spring; perfect in a shady spot with dappled light; prefers moisture so water regularly for abundant flowers and nice foliage
Red Sentinel Astilbe has masses of beautiful plumes of red flowers at the ends of the stems in mid summer, which are most effective when planted in groupings. The flowers are excellent for cutting. Its ferny compound leaves emerge coppery-bronze in spring, turning dark green in color throughout the season. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.
