Astilbe - Visions in Pink
Soft Pink Plumes in July
The Astilbe Chinensis Visions in Pink PP#118, 'Astilbe Chinensis', has clear soft pink plumes that light up shady garden spaces in the mid to late summer.
Astilbe is admired for its attractive foliage and elegant flower plumes. The summer lacy deep green foliage adds a ferny texture to garden beds long after the blooms have faded.
The ‘Visions in Pink’ plumes offer a striking contrast against the coarsely textured, blue-green foliage. These mid summer blooming beauties are ideal for borders, containers, and gardens on the edge of woodlands.
For maximum color and impact, mass astilbe in groups in partly shaded gardens, though this one can tolerant some morning sun or full sun in cooler areas.
Astilbe needs well drained, but moist and highly organic soil; humusy forest gardens are a perfect example of where these plants will thrive. This Astilbe is more sun and drought tolerant than other Astilbes.
Drifts of this ‘Visions in Pink’ Astilbe are stunning when paired with other blooming shade plants like Japanese Orchids or Peonies.
