This collage is of a mystery astilbe. It blooms in mid June and I have no idea which one it is.
Its not tall,I would say medium height. Early leaves are bronze color and blooms are paechy rather than pink.

Check Astilbe Peach Blossom and see what you think. I think the leaves should be a darker green or are yours getting sun?

Thanks I'll give a look. Leaves are the dark color when it first starts to put up bloom spikes.
