False spirea, Chinese astilbe, Astilbe chinensis 'Visions in Red' - 6/20/12

Shorter than ‘Visions in Pink' with striking burgundy–red foliage and glowing burgundy–red plume panicles to 24". Tolerates drier soils better than other astilbes.

This is a relatively low maintenance perennial, and is best cleaned up in early spring before it resumes active growth for the season. It is a good choice for attracting butterflies to your yard.
