Astilbe ‘Fanal’ – This clump forming perennial is a descendant of A. arendsii and grows 24” tall and 18” wide. It produces dark green foliage. In early summer it bears dense panicles of vivid purplish red flowers.
Grow in moist fertile, humus rich soil or boggy sites in full sun, or in drier soils in lightly shaded areas and don’t allow it to dry out. They dislike alkaline or clay soil that dries out. Divide in spring or winter when dormant every 3 or 4 years to maintain vigor and flower quality and remove and discard old woody rhizomes.
