Where would gardening be without Astilbes? A showy group of herbaceous perennials, full and fluffy spires of spectacular feathery plumes rise above finely cut foliage of green and bronze. A natural for bold, vertical statements, its hardiness belies its delicate form. All prefer to lounge in cool, moisture-retentive soil, with partial to full shade (inland). One of the best perennials for woodland plantings, they’re also lovely cut flowers.
Like a grand finale of summer, soft pink, long blooming flower spikes at least a foot tall start heading skyward in late summer and keep going until autumn. Their upright appearance makes for a perfect blend with Molinia, Stachys ‘Primrose Heron’ and Geranium ‘Orion’.
Size: 3' 0" high x 2' 0" wide.
