Cultivar Notes - 'Aphrodite'
Red and white flower parts combine to form vibrant rosy-red plumes on upright, red stems. Blooms in mid to late summer. New foliage has red tinting, maturing to dark green.
Genus Notes - Astilbe
If you're looking for summer color in shade, you need Astilbes. They produce feathery plumes in red, white, and pink after most other shade plants have finished flowering. For best results, plant in soil that doesn't dry out completely. Astilbe produce large plumes in varius sizes and shapes. Each plume consists of hundreds of tiny flowers, each opening in succession, providing a long season of bloom. Plumes make excellent fresh cuts or for drying in natural bouquets. Astilbe grow best in moist soils and semi-shade. Will tolerate more sun with adequate moisture. Excellent for the woodland garden. Plant in mass for a stunning display.
Species Notes - Astilbe simplicifolia
Slower growing and more compact with glossy foliage. Generally bloom late season with delicate, open panicles. These types will often rebloom. Zone 3-8.
