Astilbe Amethyst

Astilbe Amethyst

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.

Botanical Name: Astilbe x arendsii 'Amethyst'
