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.

Living up to its name, this dazzling Alan Bloom arendsii selection spotlights feathered pristine white flowers and gleaming medium green compound leaves. The majestic, broad triangular spires top slender upright stems above tailored deeply hewn toothed leaves, imparting a classic combination of green and pearly white. Easily grown ‘Snowdrift’ can be utilized as an edging plant along paths and ponds or be massed as a spectacular ground cover.

Blooms May–June

Size: 2' 0" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.
