Astilbe chinensis ‘Mighty Red Quin’

Chinese Astilbe

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.087.950

Astilbe are a popular choice for shady gardens, where they perform well if given a rich, moist soil and regular watering. This new introduction is similar to A. ‘Mighty Pip’ in that it is tall reaching up to 1.2m (4 ft) but features showy, upright, red plumes over boldly divided dark green leaves that may have bronze edging. Robust grower. Will rebloom if plants are cut back. Excellent in containers, as a cut flower and for the back of the border. Seed heads may be removed, or left on the plant for winter interest.
