The deep salmon-red buds of ‘Delft Lace’ open to soft apricot-pink flowers in early summer. This Astilbe has stronger stems and brighter colors than ‘Peach Blossom’, an old favorite.
The foliage is really catchy, a lacy deep blue-green with red highlights. The fall color is bronze-red.
- Salmon-red buds open to apricot pink flowers
- Attractive foliage
- Great fall color
- The most tolerant Astilbe for Missouri gardens
The flower buds are just as attractive as the bloom, and then as the flower fades, the stalks dry in place leaving textural interest for weeks to come.
The foliage adds a nice component to coarse textured plants like Hosta and Brunnera.
