A dwarf plant - about 15 to 20cm (6" to 8") high, with elegant, divided, dark green and bronzed foliage. Little plumes appear later in summer - very pale pink, almost creamy white, which contrast well with the dark foliage. A good companion for Astilbe glaberrima var. saxatilis
Easily grown in soils that won't get too dry in summer.
For comparison, in the group photo, 'Willie Buchanan' is on the left ('Sprite' on the right and Astilibe galberrima saxatilis in front).
