Ok, so this astilbe is called Cappuccino. Why would you name a plant after a style of coffee? Well, the spectactular feathery plumes of white flowers are the froth on top of the lacy reddish brown foliage which does a pretty good job of impersonating the coffee. See? Sun or semi-shade. Moist soil. 24 in. 2 litre pot.
The foliage of Astilbe Cappuccino turns to a greener shade as the season wears on, but it's still a thing of beauty.
Astilbe has common names of False Spirea and False Goatsbeard, which are less than flattering, as the plant has plenty to offer in its own right!
Although generally billed as a plant for shade, we find that astilbes flower better given a bit of sun in their lives, so don't hide them away in too dark a corner of your garden.
Astilbe Cappuccino is a hardy perennial plant with reddish brown leaves and plumes of white flowers in early to mid summer suitable for sun or semi-shade.
