KVBC SPRING CHALLENGE 2020

Astelia

Red Shadow

Astelia Red Shadow has beautiful copper-red colored leaves. It is a compact plant that grows upright and becomes about 80 cm high and wide. Red Shadow has a dense habit. It is a nice addition to the perennial border but also very suitable for mass planting, as an accent plant, for a Mediterranean garden or for in a pot on the balcony or terrace.

Jury report

Nice plant that appeals to people; good growth and also very suitable for use in dry shade; the leaves become redder when the plants are in the sun, in the presentation it is not very red; the leaves are sturdy and the plant radiates robustness; there are some more or less similar cultivars on the market.
