PERENNIAL
ASTILBE

(False Spirea, False Goatsbeard) Zones 4-9

Great mounding, glossy leaf plant that ranges from 10" to 28" with fluffy plumes that last long in cut arrangements. Needs rich, moist, well-drained soil. 

Well worth the little extra care, the elegance of the feathery flowers, ferny foliage, array of colors and the flower times are spectacular when massed in a shady spot or combined with Hostas and Ferns.
