Astilbe Red Sentinel — 4 Comments

  1. Hello, Alistair!
    Lovely astilbe, especially yours – red one. I have no this color, very pretty. Do you propagate it in your garden? I often cut astilbe’s roots and have had some more to plant in different places.
    Do you prune the flowers before winter comes or do you love seeing its dry flowers in winter? I know some people love to leave their dry stems for winter.

  2. Hello there Alistair ! Thank you for dropping by my blog : ) I feel it has been so long since I have visited blogs , I am totally out of touch and now winter is advancing creating a true totally shut down .. I’m still not ready !
    One of my first astilbe was Montgomery Red and it still flowers for me even though it is about 18 years old ! It amazes me !
    I think that is wonderful you are experimenting with darker colours .. some times we get stuck in a rut with staying “safe” colour wise and we need that push to try something different.
    Your garden looks gorgeous all the time : ) I really have to try astrantia again .. I didn’t have much luck twice, so I shied away from it, but I do love those beautiful flowers ! You have inspired me for next year, first plant on my Lust List 2019 ! LOL
