Astilbe arendsii 'Erika'

Erika False Spirea

Large growing with upright spikes of dense plume like panicles of pink blooms over bronze tinted foliage. Prefers shady, moist sites, but must have good drainage during the winter. Requires constant moisture if grown in full sun. Cutting back burnt, brown foliage will rejuvenate the foliage but will not induce more flowering.
