The flowers of this variety of False Goat’s Beard, Astilbe Raspberry, are, as the name suggests, a delicious deep pink. The tiny flowers appear in conical shaped clusters which resemble frothy plumes, exquisitely pretty above glossy, deeply divided foliage with toothed margins.

Native to North America and Asia, where it grows naturally in woodland or on mountain ravines, Astilbe likes moist but not waterlogged soil and thrives growing beside streams or ponds where the flowers reflect mesmerically in the water. The common name is self-explanatory!


The lovely plumes of flowers appear in July and last until October. The brown seed heads add autumn and winter interest.

  • Fertile, moist soil
  • South, west facing
  • Partial shade

Plant ideally beside water or in a bog garden, or ensure that the soil remains moist during the summer. Can be planted in containers but again check the soil is kept moist. Leave spent flower heads for autumnal interest.
