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 x crispa ‘Perkeo’ full sun  partial shade

Lustrous, heavily divided crinkly foliage that sculpts an impeccable small-sized mound sets this AGM winner apart from other Astilbes. Grounded by compact, low growing dark green leaves and reddish hennasuffused young growth, short stiff upright stems unfurl attractive pyramidal spires of miniature deep rosy pink flowers. Enduring drier soil in shady spots and nearly full sun in cool summer regions, ‘Perkeo’ can enrich the front lines of a border, a shady rock garden or patio container.

Blooms July–August.

Size: 10" high x 10" wide; hardy to zone 4.
