Plant Features

Astilbe arendsii 'Fanal' stands as a stellar perennial, celebrated for its vibrant and feathery plumes of deep scarlet blossoms, delicately perched upon upright spires, bringing vitality to garden spaces. Known for being one of the earliest red varieties to unveil its splendid blooms, Fanal seamlessly transitions through seasons with its foliage exhibiting a rich mahogany red in spring, which gently shifts to a lush green as summer unfolds. The stylish, fern-like mounds of sharply-toothed leaves not only provide a sophisticated ground cover but also present gardeners with aesthetic choices: some may opt to preserve the neat appearance by removing faded flower stalks, while others may relish the ornamental and naturalized demeanor brought forth by the dried seed heads. Fanal is shipped as a bare root, a method we favor for its ability to establish quickly, double in size compared to its potted counterparts within the first season, and omit the necessity for plastic pots—providing an eco-friendly advantage.

 

Common Names: hybrid astilbe, false spirea, false goat's beard

 

Astilbe Companion Plants: Ferns, Helleborus, Hosta

 

Astilbe Plant Care Instructions: Ensure your plants remain consistently hydrated, as allowing them to dry out can be detrimental. The faded flowers may be pruned to encourage further blooming, or left intact to add enduring visual interest to your garden. Come early winter, consider trimming back the foliage to a modest 2 inches above the ground to promote healthy, vibrant growth in the forthcoming spring season.
