I have been advised to repost this question. So here goes.

I know it is an Astilbe, but all efforts to find out which variety have come to nothing. It is late flowering and the red-tinged leaves turn a wonderful colour in autumn. The small nursery I bought it from have no details on it. HELP!

Geranimojess is colour blind along with many other dodgy bodily functions! Welcome back by the way, haven't heard from you in a while. Some people here missed you, not me though.
