Astilbe thunbergii hybrid
A hardy, winter dormant perennial that loves shade. Forms clumps of very attractive foliage reminiscent of a lovely fern, and frequently having darker bronze tones on some of the leaves particularly when they first emerge in spring. Tall feathery plumes of elegant, slightly weeping pink flowers appear later in the season. Prefers dappled shade such as a woodland area and moisture retentive soil. Size at maturity will be around 60-90cm flowering height, and around 40-50cm across. 1 litre pot.
