Astilbe Fanal, False SpireaSKU: n/a.
A long-time favorite, the classic ‘Fanal’ Astilbe brings fluffy dark red flower plumes on top deep green ferny foliage. Its green foliage with bronze tones matures to a graceful mound 18″ tall and 12″ wide. Very easy to grow ‘Fanal’ Astilbe is not bothered by deer or rabbits, and grows in shade, even heavy shade.
‘Fanal’s’ compact foliage makes it a top choice for containers and edging. It looks lovely in shady woodland gardens. It’s fantastic in formal beds, cottage, pollinator, and cutting gardens. Astilbe works well massed or grouped in shady gardens. It make an excellent groundcover or as an edging plant as long as consistent moisture can be given. Spectacular landscapes can be created by using them in serpentine patterns. With its strong contrasting foliage Astilbe and Hosta planted together is a match made in heaven. Astilbe attracts butterflies and other pollinators. Deer and rabbits leave Astilbe alone.
Plant in shade to part shade in soil that has been amended with organic mater. Keep consistently watered. If plants dry out they may go dormant. Adding a top dressing of mulch will help hold water in the soil.
