In Living Color: the Visions Astilbe!
Purple Astilbe combines striking, sweetly scented purple flowers and bronze-green, fern-like foliage.
It is known for divided leaves and showy pyramidal spikes of tiny flowers borne in plumes. The overall effect is spectacular!
Astilbes are stunning cut flowers, and these long lasting blooms add a breathtaking accent to any fresh flower arrangement. They dry in decorative shades, and flower stalks left in the garden after bloom continue to provide ornamental interest in the winter landscape.
Excellent for border or waterside plantings, Astilbes also work well in mass plantings of 5 or more where they do not have to compete with tree or shrub roots.
Try pairing this plant with columbine or hostas in shady borders as they make an attractive anchor, in areas with more sun they work nicely with peonies.
These flowers thrive in moist, humus rich soil, and the plants are very hardy.
The Visions Astilbe is very low maintenance and a quick reproducer...enjoy all the benefits without the hard work!
