Fanal Astilbe Plant
'Fanal' is a long-time Wayside Gardens favorite!
This long-time Wayside favorite boasts delightfully decorative bronze foliage and flowers that are the darkest red of the Astilbes. Reaching 2 feet tall with spikes at least a foot long of rich garnet-red lightly dusted with white, it is one of the most vividly colored Astilbes, as well as one of the longest lasting.
Excellent for the shade border, 'Fanal' produces long-lasting feathery flowerheads in summer that, if left uncut, provide winter landscape interest as well. They make splendid Everlastings for indoor arrangements, and complement the deeply cut bronze foliage.
Space plants 8 to 12 inches apart in a deep, rich, moist soil with plenty of organic matter. Water well and mulch in hot, dry weather. Zones 4-8.
