Plant Features

Discover the allure of Astilbe japonica 'Red Sentinel', celebrated as one of the best reds, blooming with vibrant scarlet-red flowers held in open, lacy panicles. Accentuated by a striking contrast between its forest green foliage and tall mahogany-red stems. Even the gentlest breeze sets these airy, dancing plumes into gentle motion, offering a breathtaking spectacle for any garden enthusiast. Red Sentinel 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: japanese astible, 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.
