Botanical: Astilbe x arendsii 'Glow'
Common: Astilbe (False Spirea)
General Characteristics: Glowing dark red blossoms on long, narrow plumes make this a very striking Astilbe variety. Late bloomer. Prefers a rich and moist soil, high in organic matter, in shade, but will tolerate full sun with sufficient moisture. Astilbes are among the most beautiful plants you can grow in your garden and they are mainstays of shade and woodland gardens. They are clump-forming perennials which feature graceful, fern-like mounds of mostly basal, 2-3 ternately compound leaves, usually with sharply-toothed leaflets, and tiny flowers densely packed into erect to arching, plume-like flower panicles rising above the foliage on slender, upright stems.
