Astilbe thunbergii ‘Ostrich Plume/Straussenfeder
Common Name: False Spiraea Family: Saxifragaceae (The Saxifrage Family)

One of my favourite astilbes, ‘Ostrich Plume’ is a tall plant with large broad plumes of arching dark coral pink flowers and rich green leaves. The arching habit provides a nice variation on the astilbe theme. Shade to part sun.
