Description / Astilbe 'Look at Me'

'Look at Me' was bred to reach a top height of just 15 to 17 inches tall, but even that close to the ground, it is sure to capture attention. Because of its disciplined growth habit, 'Look at Me' spends all its energy on blooms, creating huge plumes of creamy pink flowers that bloom in succession on dramatic red stems.

The blooms come on in early- to midsummer, adding a gorgeous raspberry-pink accent to the front of a shady border or any sheltered bed or container. The massed effect is stunning; use 'Look at Me' as a groundcover in shady spots or as a cluster in the woodland garden. And of course the splendid foliage is a welcome addition to the vase!

Astilbe likes part shade, rich soil, and frequent watering (especially when blooming). 'Look at Me' is no exception: plant the eye about ½ inch deep in shady, evenly moist soil. Part shade, constant moisture, and the occasional dose of fertilizer will ensure that these blooms reach their full glorious potential. Do your part, and 'Look at Me' will reward you with years of reliable beauty--especially since it is pest-resistant! It is an excellent choice for borders that receive any exposure from dappled sunlight to nearly full shade. Long-lived and low maintenance, it is a perennial to be treasured in the shade! Zones 3 to 8.
