With a myriad of feathery plumes above delicate emerald foliage, Younique™ Ruby Red Astilbe adds height, color, and texture to containers, beds, and borders. Otherwise known as Astilbe x Younique™ Ruby Red (‘Versred’), this false goat’s beard grows to a height of 12-16 inches and width of 14-18 inches, making it ideal for small spaces. Younique™ Ruby Red Astilbe flowers in late spring and early summer, much earlier than other Astilbe ornamentals. The petite ruby-red florets rise out of a mound of fine foliage and attract butterflies and bees. 

Originating from Asia, Younique™ Ruby Red Astilbe is cold hardy in zones 3-8. With its compact, mound-forming habit, it works well planted in containers, whether alone as a specimen or as a thriller in a thriller-spiller-filler combination. In landscapes, plant several astilbes along shade borders and in rock, woodland, and shade gardens, multiplying the effect of their color. A deer-resistant plant, you don’t have to worry about critters eating your flowers late at night. Create stunning bouquets with its gorgeous plumes to enjoy during the summer or allow the flowers to dry for later use. 

Younique™ Ruby Red Astilbe Care

While tolerating full shade, Younique™ Ruby Red Astilbe thrives in partial sun, especially morning sun followed by afternoon shade. Plant during spring in moist, loamy, well-draining, slightly acidic soil. A pH in the vicinity of 6.0 is suitable. Amend poor soil with compost. Water whenever the top one to two inches of soil are dry. The ground should remain consistently moist. During spring, apply a low-nitrogen fertilizer such as a 5-10-10 to encourage better production of this astilbe’s florets.

A long blooming perennial, Younique™ Ruby Red Astilbe blooms once. As a result, deadheading, unless for appearance, is not needed. The dried flowers provide continued interest during the winter. If grown in a container, divide and transplant every 3 to 4 years.

Younique™ Ruby Red Astilbe Spacing

Space each astilbe plant 14 to 18 inches apart in borders and beds. Excellent companion plants include azaleas, columbine, and hosta. Use the cut flower stems alone in a vase or mix with other cut flowers such as roses, peonies, and hydrangea.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
