The Astilbe ‘Montgomery’, Astilbe japonica, has wonderful deep red to scarlet-red flowers with dark red-bronze foliage changing to green in the spring.

The flowers contrast wonderfully with the glossy foliage. Astilbe ‘Montgomery’ blooms in mid-summer and is 20” tall and a plant width of 24”. Do not allow Astilbe ‘Montgomery’ to dry out.

It is most successfully grown in a shady area but can tolerate some morning sun. A moist, well-drained area is key for this plant.

In order to keep Astilbe looking good for the next year, do not cut it back in the winter, (the old foliage helps protect the plant from winter damage), but prune in early spring.

Astilbe can be used as cut flowers, perennial borders or shade gardens with Hosta’s and Ferns.

Astilbe is considered to be deer resistant and will attract hummingbirds.
