Plant Features

The Astilbe Fanal False Spirea Plant produces light feathery plumes of tiny blossoms that are a deep scarlet color. Some gardeners will remove the faded flower stalks to maintain the ground cover look with its sharply-toothed leaves that grows in stylish, fern-like mounds; other gardeners fully enjoy the ornamental and naturalized look of the dried seed heads. Fanal ships as a bare root. We like growing from bare roots because they establish quickly, become twice the size of a potted plant in the first season, and eliminate the need for plastic pots (a win for the environment).

Common Names: false spirea, false goat's beard

Astilbe Companion Plants: Ferns, Helleborus, Hosta

Fanal Astilbe Plant Care Instructions: Plants should never allow to dry out. The spent flowers can be removed or left on for garden interest. Foliage can be trimmed back to the 2-inchs above the ground in early winter.
