Description: A floriferous dwarf variety producing lovely shell pink blooms above a very compact clump of glossy foliage; perfect in a shady spot with dappled light; prefers moisture so water regularly for abundant flowers and nice foliage; great for mixed containers. Sugarberry Astilbe is an herbaceous perennial with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other garden plants with less refined foliage. This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and is best cleaned up in early spring before it resumes active growth for the season. It is a good choice for attracting butterflies to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats.
Ornamental Features: Masses of beautiful plumes of shell pink flowers at the ends of the stems from early to mid summer, which are most effective when planted in groupings. The flowers are excellent for cutting. Its small deeply cut ferny compound leaves remain dark green in colour throughout the season.
