Astilbe – Vision In Pink Chinese Astilbe
Adorn your garden with plumes of jewel pink with Vision In Pink Astilbe. Its large, fluffy upright flowers appear above rich-green ferny foliage. A robust variety that tolerates full sun and drier soils better than others. Good drought tolerance.
Fantastic in formal beds, cottage, pollinator, and cutting gardens, Astilbe works well massed or grouped in shady gardens. It makes an excellent ground cover or an edging plant as long as consistent moisture can be given. Spectacular landscapes can be created by using them in serpentine patterns. With its strong contrasting foliage, Astilbe and Hosta planted together is a match made in heaven. Astilbe attracts butterflies and other pollinators. Deer and rabbits leave Astilbe alone.
Plant in shade to part shade in soil that has been amended with organic matter. Keep consistently watered. If plants dry out they may go dormant. Adding a top dressing of mulch will help hold water in the soil.
