Shady spaces in the landscape need not be dark and gloomy. A generous planting of Happy Spirit will chase away the shadows found along north-facing foundations, under trees, between shrubbery and any other darkened corners of the property. This new astilbe provides an amazing color contrast between the pure white, wispy flower plumes and the bright red stems, making it a garden go-to for homeowners that want something special, but don't have a lot of sunny sites to fill. We suggest planting Happy Spirit in groups to show off its glorious color amid glossy, deep bluish-green foliage. It is sure to add unique flair to low-light locales, containers and cut-flower bouquets.
