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.
A preeminent white flowering variety, this japonica hybrid promises to soothe your senses with its large, snowy white plumes. Sharply toothed leaves gather in a lustrous dark green foil for the branching pyramidal-shaped spires whose bright lacy blooms fade to green as they wane. Like a breathe of fresh air ushering in summer, ‘Ellie’s incandescent beauty can be shown off en masse, escorting Heuchera ‘Cinnabar’s frosted foliage.
Blooms May – June.
