#foliagefriday #astilbe #false-spirea I wonder if this will flower this year, it usually gets gets smothered by other plants so I moved it to give it some space 🤎🤔

They all turn green as they mature unfortunately. This was only named Astilbe, I'm hoping it's going to be the pink one 💖 @kez001uk

This tiny Astilbe is a real fighter. It was planted last year and got totally smothered by other plants, (bad plant mum) so I put it in a pot where it rallied for a while then appeared to have died. I just left the pot in a sheltered position over winter and lo and behold it's back. #astilbe #fighter #eureka-moment #backfromthedead 4/4/19

All 4 of mine are coming back. I was quite surprised because like you, I thought they'd died. They may not be in the best location, too much sun maybe. I'll watch them this year and may have to move them

The false spiraea I have is nothing like my astilbe but I may be having another senior moment ( they're quite regular now ) 😂

It's this app that came up with the name when I was cataloguing, so I've just checked on Google ands Astilbe is also known as False Spirea Chris. Thanks for making sure I got it right @christineb 😊😊
