The Vision in Red Astilbe is indeed a vision – of late blooming glory and of greater sun and dryness resistance. You get these benefits from this lovely perennials, with the rich raspberry red of the flower spikes – slender, upright and coming after the main blooming of most other varieties. Plus, although still needing reasonable amounts of water, you will find it much more durable and able to grow in sun and drier soils, expanding its use to many of your garden beds. It is gorgeous by water, of course, but also fronting shrub beds, lining a path, growing between big bold hosta plants, and just about anywhere but those hot and dry places. About 2 feet tall in bloom, the strongly-upright flower spikes have characteristic fluffy flower clusters at a tight angle, giving a slender look with lots of impact. The dark green foliage is glossy and fern-like, and less likely to shrivel in summer once plants are established.

  • Slender, dense heads of raspberry-red flowers
  • Blooms in late summer, after most other astilbe
  • Tolerates more sun and drier soil than most other astilbe do
  • Great choice for shadier parts of your garden
  • Trouble-free and very easy to grow

You can successfully grow the Vision in Red Astilbe in full sun in cooler zones if the soil is not dry, and in partial to light full shade everywhere. It grows best in moist, well-drained soil, but takes a little dryness, once established, and will also grow in wet ground. Preferring some added organic material, it isn’t fussy about soil type of quality. Super-easy to grow – but water regularly while young – it also isn’t bothered by pests, diseases, rabbits or deer. You can leave the flower spikes all winter if you like, and trim them back in spring. The leaves usually fall naturally and disappear, or they can be trimmed once they begin to yellow.
