Description

Fiery Plumes Light up Your garden

Part of the Short and Sweet® series, this astilbe was bred to reach a top height of just 16 inches tall. Because of its disciplined growth habit, Astilbe 'Fireberry' spends all its energy on blooms, creating torch-like masses of hot pink panicles that divide the ferny foliage nicely. The blooms come on in early- to midsummer, adding a gorgeous raspberry-pink accent to the front of a shady border or any sheltered bed or container. The massed effect is stunning; use Astilbe 'Fireberry' as a groundcover in shady spots or as a cluster in the woodland garden. And of course the splendid foliage is a welcome addition to the vase.

Astilbe likes part shade, rich soil, and frequent watering (especially when blooming). 'Fireberry' is no exception: give it part to full shade and even moisture to let these blooms reach their full glorious potential. Do your part, and Astilbe 'Fireberry' will reward you with years of reliable beauty—especially since it is pest-resistant. It is an excellent choice for borders that receive any exposure from dappled sunlight to nearly full shade. Long-lived and low maintenance, it is a perennial to be treasured in the shade.

Fireberry False Spiraea

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I just planted 2 a few weeks ago and already the leafs are starting to show. We've had some terrible weather in NJ...but it didn't bother their growth. I can't wait to watch them grow bigger and bigger.
