Astilbe chinensis 'Visions'

Common Name: Chinese Astilbe

  • Raspberry pink plumes are sweetly fragrant with a dense, pyramidal shape
  • Blooms in midsummer
  • Large, clear green leaves with a coarse texture
  • A dwarf selection

A member of Astilbe chinensis(Chinese Astilbe). A later blooming species useful for extending the bloom season into late summer. Foliage is deeply incised, coarsely textured, and often bronze-green in color. Flowers are borne on narrow, branched panicles. Though garden performance is far superior in moist soils, members of this species are moderately drought tolerant. Shorter varieties such as 'Pumila' make excellent groundcovers.
