Astilbe White

Astilbe come in a full range of sizes and flower colors. This is not intended to be a complete list as breeders introduce new varieties each year.

You can obtain an astilbe for any height, colours in the white-pink-red-mauve combinations, bloom time from early to late and leaf color now. The sky is the limit it would seem with this plant for our bog gardens.

Astilbe x arendsii hybrids (named after the plant breeder George Arends)
'Amythest' 24-inches tall, lavender-mauve blooms, good grower
'Bressingham Beauty' 36-inches tall, deep pink blooms, excellent plant
'Fanal' 18-24 inches, deep red, old fashioned but with bronzed spring leaves turning green
'Peaches and Cream' 24-30 inches tall, pinkish-white plume, midseason bloomer

Check your local garden center for the newer varieties, there will be tons of them.

Astilbe simplicifolia 'Sprite' is a dwarf at 18-inches tall, bronzy leaves and soft pink flowers. An excellent plant and award winner.
