|I'd like to know if anyone recognizes this variety so I can put a name to it, would love to buy more, but I don't know what it is as it was labeled assorted when I got it. |

|This will possibly be quite difficult to ID. Many astilbes look very similar and only have a slight hue or height difference. The hue could also be influenced by growing conditions, your camera and my computer monitor (among other things). It is perhaps similar to 'astilbe rheinland',|
but by no means is that a correct ID.
Hopefully someone incredibly well-versed in them will show up, but until then all I can offer is:

|I would not describe it at all as red, or pink. It is a really bright hot pink, like a fuscia color, it has no peachy color to it. |
It has to be something really common and inexpensive because I bought it at Lowes for $1 on a clearance rack, just marked assorted.
The rheinland looks close enough, I will check that out and see if I can find one to compare to. Thank you!

|A few Astilbe to compare, I can't pick one out which closely matches yours. |

|thanks for the link, I don't think the descriptions match mine though. |

|This is an astilbe ardendsii ' Drum & Brass ' I bought 4 or 5 days ago ... looks real close ???|
My kilt beats the pants off saxon pants especially in summer !

|yes it does! I do know that Lowes carries Monrovia plants, I don't remember if it was that or not, but I don't think it was. I think the pot was black, but maybe not ... |
I will record that name for later. Thank you!
