Astilbe Montgomery

Montgomery Astilbe

  • Deep red flowers in early June
  • Incredibly rich and vibrant color
  • Bronzy-red foliage matures to a deep, lustrous green
  • Excellent planted in groups
  • Attracts hummingbirds
Many people think there is no better red flowering Astilbe that 'Fanal' but we think that 'Montgomery' is far superior. Its deep red flower color in early June is richer and more vibrant that 'Fanal' but that's only the start of what makes this plant stand out. Its foliage is incredible! It emerges from the ground bronzy red in the early spring and, even as it matures to a deep, lustrous green as the spring progresses, it retains an infusion of red color that makes it jump at you from the landscape and enhances its red flower color. It's a perfect plant for partial shade and moist, well-drained soil and is a knockout when planted in groups. Watch for even more color as the hummingbirds make a bee-line to the open flowers!
