Yes, I've got and love astilbes Verdun. Mingled amongst my hostas and also in the same border as a couple of Queen Victoria Lobelias - a white one which looks lovely with the dark foliage and red flowers of the lobelias. And although my OH doesn't know yet, I'm waiting for another 3 to arrive in the post!!! I'll slip them in the garden before he gets home from work
What I'm actually looking for is something to replace tulips but also will flower just during the months between April and about end of June. I've already got anemones, ranunculus, sweet william, vinca, bellis but just wanted a couple more plants for containers in a certain area in the garden.
