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.
Large, open-branched fluffy plumes of petite rich coral pink flowers make a stylish weeping gesture above lush dark greenery, earning this heavy blooming thunbergii hybrid a coveted AGM and celebrated status as one of the most graceful Astilbes. Cultivated since 1952, ‘Ostrich Plume’s delicate looking blooms and vigorous fern-like mounds, which feature sharply toothed compound leaves and bronze-tinged new growth convey dreamy Impressionistic accents, especially when surrounded with Astrantia ‘White Giant’.
