Feathery flower spikes in a pretty lavender hue brighten
summer shade gardens. Growing 24-36" tall, Astilbe Amethyst adds wonderful
color, texture and movement to perennial borders, bed plantings and containers.
Astilbe Amethyst blooms in early to midsummer, and its feathery plumes are
showy in the garden and a vase. Lacy, deep green or bronze-green foliage adds
texture to the garden throughout the season. It grows best when planted in
rich, moist soil and in shade to partial shade. For maximum impact, plant in
groups of 5 or more. Deer tend to avoid.
