Astilbe japonica 'Red Sentinel'

  • Bright raspberry-red plumes in summer
  • Ferny foliage is a nice contrast to broad-leaf plants
  • Sturdy stems make these great for vase arrangements

Astilbe japonica 'Red Sentinel' has loads of vivacious scarlet-red flowers that bloom in early to mid-summer. The foliage is glossy green and will often be tinged with red. These make an excellent display on a border or planted in masses in the landscape.
