Astilbe is a very popular, rugged, versatile shade lover that thrives in moist conditions. They produce colorful, elongated flower plumes above divided fern-like green foliage in the summer and add bursts of impressive color to the garden landscape. Best yet, they are low maintenance, attract butterflies and are deer and rabbit resistant. They are quite diverse with hundreds of varieties to choose from. Each overacheives in providing splendid flower shows. Plant in groups or en mass to create a ground cover. Great for cutting when they are half opened.
