Astilbe  Flamingo

<i>Astilbe</i> ‘Flamingo’

Astilbe

False Spiraea

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.

Astilbe ‘Flamingo’ full sun  partial shade

Flamingo pink and proud of it, long arching, plump floral fingers extend out, gracefully cascading from the slightly fragrant, well branched upright panicles. These tapered, broad, airy towers give a long ladylike showing, while a handsome dark green clump of glistening, jagged-edged leaflets does the footwork. An esteemed Astilbe arendsii descendant, ‘Flamingo’ never needs staking, easily melds mauves and blues, and holds our interest into winter when its bushy blooms impart rich brown tones.

Zone 3/4 (pp#12664).

Blooms July – August

Size: 2-1/2' high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
