Plant details

This is a splendid astilbe for a damp border or pond side where it will produce lush filigree foliage and magnificent feathery spikes of lilac-pink flowers in early summer. It looks best as a large group but even if you only buy one plant you'll be able to divide it up into a few pieces in a year or two and replant back into the border as a group.
