Astilbe 'Younique Carmine'

Plant details

Astilbes are shade- and moisture-loving plants, bearing masses of ferny foliage, from which elegant plumes of feathery flowers appear from late-spring. They do best in woodland garden schemes where their pink or white blooms provide a splash of colour.

Astilbe 'Younique Carmine' is a compact variety, bearing dark green leaves and masses of cery dark pink flowers. It's perfect for growing towards the front of shady borders with other shade- and moisture-loving plants such as hostas and primulas. Cut back Astilbe 'Younique Carmine' after flowering and divide every three to four years.
