Astilbe are a popular choice for shady gardens, where they perform well if given a rich, moist soil and regular watering. This midsized selection has fluffy plumes of soft pink held on deep-red stems. The lacy foliage is blue-green overlaid in silver and stays attractive all season. Great in the border, also thrives in containers. Fertilize in April and June. Excellent for cutting. Seed heads may be removed, or left on the plant for winter interest. May tolerate full sun if given ample water. 1.5 gal
