An Astilbe worth its honorable name, the Mighty Pip mixes form and function into a masterpiece. Mighty as its name implies, this Astilbe boasts remarkable tolerance of harsh weather conditions and thrives in just about any kind of soil. With its lovely pink plumes and hardy, fast-growing nature it serves as an excellent choice for borders. The blushing blooms rise up to 4 feet, bringing the color closer to the eyes for all to admire. Pip prefers partial to full shade and lots of water especially while in bloom. While it isn't fussy about soils, it would rather have rich soil that is well drained. It resists deer and other pests with ease so that Pip remains a feast for the eyes, not the stomach. A charming and long-lived plant, Mighty Pip is an Astilbe to write home about! Zones 3 to 8.
