flower feature: astilbes

Emily Oster

I am currently having a little love affair with astilbes. Astilbes are shade loving perennials that come in varieties of white, pink, peach, purple and red. They grow in zones 4 to 9, reach a height of close to two feet and have a spread of about eighteen inches. Preferring a moist soil, astilbes generally bloom in early summer and with enough moisture can keep their feathery blossoms all summer long. 

Originally, I thought I might put these in a bed near the house with lily of the valley. But now - I am thinking they could do really well in an area near our sump pump discharge - beautiful and functional! Astilbes are also great for cut arrangements which is another reason to find a place for them in my garden. 

Hope everyone had a nice holiday weekend!
