Details: "ASTILBE `MONTGOMERY` 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!
Grow TipsAstilbe's should be pruned in the early spring after the last frost. Pruning them in early summer is an option but the longer you wait the more flowers could be lost to the prune. You can prune off spent flowers to keep your plant looking tidy but too much pruning late in the season can spur new growth that is delicate and may be killed off by frosts in the fall and winter and cause undo stress to the plant as well as an unsightly plant."
