Raspberry-pink plumes bloom in mid-summer on dwarf, graceful, fern-like mounds of bronze-green sharply toothed leaves. Astilbe Visions offers a cool color contrast to containers or when placed en masse in the front of the perennial border. Vision Series varieties are more drought tolerant.
Astilbe are mainstays of shade and woodland gardens. They combine well with other moisture loving plants like Brunnera, Ligularia, Lobelia and Hosta.
