Unique tall stems and large plumes!

As spring turns to summer, gorgeous fernlike foliage gives way to beautiful deep wine-red plumes. When planted in moist soil, this astilbe stays beautiful well into fall! Strawberry Cake has especially tall, sturdy stems and large plumes to make a big statement in shady spots. It also pairs well with other shade-loving perennials, like hostas and bleeding hearts.
