Astilbe ‘Fanal’

Botanical Name: ASTILBE ‘FANAL’

Astilbes are mainstays of shade and woodland gardens. They are clump-forming perennials which feature graceful, fern-like mounds of mostly basal, 2-3 ternately compound leaves, usually with sharply-toothed leaflets, and tiny flowers densely packed into erect to arching, plume-like flower panicles rising above the foliage on slender, upright stems.

‘Fanal’ is noted for having perhaps the darkest red flowers of any of the astilbes and for its bronze foliage. It is a compact cultivar which typically forms a foliage mound to 9-12″ tall with narrow panicles of dark crimson red flowers appearing on upright, 15-18″ tall stems. Foliage emerges bronze but tends to turn dark green with a reddish tint as the summer progresses.
