Pink Lightning Astilbe has masses of beautiful plumes of lightly-scented rose flowers with shell pink overtones at the ends of the stems from mid to late summer, which are most effective when planted in groupings. The flowers are excellent for cutting. The coppery-bronze fruits are carried on showy plumes with gold overtones, which are displayed in abundance from late summer to late fall. Its glossy ferny compound leaves remain dark green in color throughout the season.

It is an herbaceous perennial with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other garden plants with less refined foliage. This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and is best cleaned up in early spring before it resumes active growth for the season. It is a good choice for attracting butterflies to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats.
