Astilbe: Sprite


Cute-as-a-button Astilbe is deceptively tough and blooms later than most. It's low, compact form makes it an excellent groundcover for shady areas. Sprays of delicate-looking, shell pink blooms in July float above deep green, shiny leaves which are bronze-tinted in spring. Combines well with other shade and moisture lovers such as Siberian Bugloss (Brunnera), Mini Hosta and Japanese Painted Fern.

Early in the season, many plants are pruned to encourage later fullness, and therefore may vary in size from the photo and size range. Rest assured, they hold the same glorious potential.
