Younique™ Carmine Astilbe

Astilbe x 'Verscarmine' PP #20,324

SKU
40081
A more compact and freely flowering Astilbe! In nearly perfect proportion to the mounded, fern-like foliage, showy plumes of fragrant, fluffy flower spikes emerge on slender, upright stems in mid-summer. Good in pots and tubs. Nice colorful landscape accent in moist areas, such as around pools. Perennial.
