Called the King of the Shade Garden, astilbe has been loved for years for its feathery flower spikes which reach skyward, 18-24" tall. Sometimes called Goat's Beard or False Spirea. Astilbe blooms from June through August and can be used in dried flower arrangements. Deep green foliage with tones of bronze is deeply cut and very graceful. Beautiful, easy to grow perennial that is very hardy and free of plant pests. Europeans favor astilbe for mass plantings where the flowers nod their heads gracefully in the slightest breeze. Loves the shade but will tolerate some sun if given extra water. Does well in almost any soil. Shades of red, pink, lavender and white. Our choice of mixed colors. Plant 12" apart. Field grown plants. Deer resistant. Good cut flower. For a rain garden.
