The flowers of Astilbe 'Heavy Metal' are very bright red, in contrast to varieties such as 'Fanal', 'Red Sentinel' and 'Glut'. The enormous thick, full panicles and the large petals are striking. The plant grows to approximately 65-75 cm high and is very suitable for pots, in the garden and as a cutting plant. ‘Heavy Metal’ was bred door H.G.J. Verduin from Heemskerk and protected under plant breeding legislation. Compass Plants B.V. from Hillegom submitted the plant for the novelty showcase and also markets it.
