Astilbe chinensis 'Amber Moon'


Plant Type: Perennial
MORNING sun/AFTERNOON shade to FULL shade

This Astilbe is useful for brightening up the shade garden as well as providing beautiful long-stemmed flowers for fresh and dried bouquets.

The foliage emerges bright chartreuse yellow in spring with a tinge of red pigment in the newest leaves. It provides a bright spot of color and lacy texture to the shade garden in spring and then greens up a bit by late summer.

Very tall, strong, blush red stems carry rose pink flower panicles in midsummer.

‘Amber Moon’ displays good heat tolerance and a robust habit like Chinese Astilbe, though we cannot say for sure that it is pure A. chinensis. It is best grown in partial to full shade because of its light colored foliage.
