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. 

  • Mature Height: 12 inches
  • Mature Spread: 12 inches
  • Spacing: 12 inches
  • Sunlight: Part Sun, Shade
  • Soil Conditions: Moist (Typical)

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.

Delivery
We deliver outdoor plants within a zone around the Chicagoland. Currently, we are offering free delivery over $200, otherwise a $20 fee will be assessed. As plants are perishable, we take care to deliver them by hand using our own vehicles.
  • Delivery zone includes the North Shore Suburbs North up to Winthrop Harbor and Wauconda; North Side of Chicago to downtown and Southwest to Oak Park. See here for a list of zip codes.
  • For plant material not planted by Chalet, there is a 1-year, 50% merchandise credit guarantee.

Planting

  • To add Chalet's Planting Service, standard pricing is 50% of the plants' retail price. 
  • Right now, our normal delivery fee of $75 is waived for orders over $200. 
  • Fees do not include tree or stump removal.
  • Larger orders may require separate labor quote. Plantings carry a 1-year full guarantee. However, there is no guarantee for container or planter plantings as they are difficult to overwinter.
