Description: Part of the Short and Sweet® series, this Astilbe was bred to reach a top height of just 16 inches tall. Because of its disciplined growth habit, ‘Fireberry’ spends all its energy on blooms, creating torch-like masses of hot pink panicles that divide the ferny foliage nicely. The blooms come on in early to midsummer, adding a gorgeous raspberry-pink accent to the front of a shady border or any sheltered bed or container.
Ornamental Features: It is an excellent choice for borders that receive any exposure from dappled sunlight to nearly full shade. Long-lived and low maintenance, it is a perennial to be treasured in the shade!
Landscape Features: Astilbe likes part shade, rich soil, and frequent watering (especially when blooming).
