Fragrant Lavender-Raspberry Plumes in Mid Summer

The Astilbe ‘Visions’, Astilbe chinensis, is a colorful feathery flower with fragrant lavender-raspberry blooms and lacy blue-green foliage.  The flowers contrast wonderfully with the glossy foliage.

Astilbe ‘Visions’ blooms in July and is 15” tall and has a plant width of 12-18”.  It is most successfully grown in a shady area, but can tolerate some morning sun. Although this Astilbe is more tolerant of dry soil than other Astilbes, do not allow it to dry out. It prefers moist, humusy, organically rich soils.

A moist, well-drained area is a key feature for growing a healthy plant.  In order to keep Astilbe looking good for the next year, do not cut it back in the winter, (the old foliage helps protect the plant from winter damage), but prune in early spring.

Astilbe is considered to be diesease, deer and rabbit resistant and will attract hummingbirds and butterflies.

‘Visions’ Astilbe can be used as cut flowers to make grand bouquets.  Plant this showy perennial for beautiful summer color in shady areas.  You will be delighted to see how this plant forms a graceful perennial border, or add to shade gardens with hostas and ferns!
