'Mr. Mustard' boasts extraordinarily colourful foliage - yellow, orange, red, pink, and lime green meld together in springtime to make a striking show. By summertime, the foliage softens to a vibrant Kelly green and complements the fabulous creamy white flowers. These large, astilbe-like blooms attract butterflies and pollinators and its suckering habit lends a naturalized look to any garden. With some annual pruning, it easily keeps its mounded habit, suiting it perfectly for mixed beds.
