Younique™ White Astilbe
The most free-flowering astilbe yet!
If roses are the ‘Queen of the Sunny Garden’ then astilbe is the ‘Mae West of the Shade’ – a little bawdy, a little sexy and always dressed to the nines with fluff and sass. Younique White Astilbe (Astilbe Verswhite) is a new cultivar bred in the Netherlands to produce stronger foliage and flowering than ever before – and boy does it ever deliver!
This compact shade-lover doesn’t scrimp on flower-power despite its tight, small form. Even though it only grows to 20” tall, it covers itself in full-sized pure white fluffy flowers. It looks like it’s wearing a feather boa! The flower plumes are fragrant and are borne on slender stems that shoot straight up from the center of the foliage. The foliage is very fern-like. It forms an attractive mound of spring-green leaves that stays compact and dense.
You get a long season of beautiful bloom as new flowers open when old flowers fade. The flowers are excellent cuts, either fresh or dried. Astilbe is a classic shade garden plant. It looks fantastic in big drifts in the shade border or under big trees where other plants might struggle. Try Younique White in pots or by ponds, too (It especially loves wet spots.)
This is an herbaceous perennial that will fill in quickly wherever it’s happy. It is a must-have addition to smaller gardens, urban decks or your shaded balcony. Younique White Astilbe is just begging for you to come up and see her sometime! Add this sassy beauty to your shade garden today!
