If you are seeking stunning blossoms for your shade garden, this is the perennial for you. Astilbe is a great plant for color and texture in the shade garden and makes wonderful edging or foreground plantings. Astilbe plants are cultivated as hardy, herbaceous perennials for their large fern-like foliage, and dense, feathery plumes of flowers from mid-June through September. They are rarely eaten by deer and one of the few groundcovers that will grow under walnut trees. Once you've seen their flowers, we're pretty sure you'll want to try every variety we offer.
