Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:

This plant will outperform most astilbes in any garden settings and will be a superior container plant in nursery culture. Imagine Peach Blossom with fantastic foliage and unbreakable red stems and you have Delft Lace. The mighty blooms are held high above the foliage on candy apple red stems. The buds emerge deep salmon-pink and open to a soft apricot-pink. Spring foliage emerges shiny moon and ages to deep olive green with a blue tint. This is one astilbe you won’t kill.
