Where would gardening be without Astilbes? A natural for soft-looking vertical statements, it’s distinguished by spectacular feathery plumes rising above finely cut foliage of green and bronze. Its hardiness belies its lovely delicate form. Rewarding you with oodles of cut flowers, these easily grown, unflappable perennials prefer to lounge in cool moisture-retentive soil with sun to dappled shade.
A preeminent white-flowering variety, this japonica hybrid promises to soothe your senses with its large snowy white sprays. Sharply toothed leaves gather in a shiny dark green foil for the branching pyramidal-shaped flowers whose lacy bright blooms fade to green as they wane. Like a breath of fresh air ushering in summer, ‘Ellie’s incandescent beauty can be shown off in drifts, alongside Campanula ‘Kent Belle’s violet-blue flowers.
Size: 2' 0" high x 18" wide.
