Summer-long color for the shade

Astilbe are rugged, shade-loving perennials that flaunt long, colorful, fluffy, flower spikes all summer long. With a variety of sizes, shapes, bloom colors, bloom times, and foliage colors (green or bronze, with either shiny or matte finish), Astilbe make perfect neighbors to other perennials. Pest free and handsome, Astilbe are wonderful in the woodland border or massed to create a bright groundcover, bringing great color and texture to the shade garden.
