How under rated astilbes are I think.  

Their foliage, ESP when pink or red, is so good right now.  Lovely feathery shiny, copper red foliage is as eye catching as many flowers at this time and next to bright fresh leaves of variegated hostas or yellow Bowles golden grass looks womderful.  And those flowers still to come too but it's that womderful spring foliage that makes me love my astilbes.

I have a variety called x rosea Peach Blossom. The foliage is a very deep reddish colour, beautiful.
