Astilbe Ice Cream

Astilbe Ice Cream

Recently introduced, this new free-flowering astilbe is a real treat for shady spaces. Ice Cream bestows plentiful, large plumes of fluffy florets in various shades of luscious pink. This luxuriant display of both hue and form adds a pretty bit of color and beauty to the often neglected, darkened corners of the landscape. Not just relegated to the beds and borders, Ice Cream's flower plumes make unique fresh arrangements, too. Plus, the dark foliage remains attractive even after the flowers are spent. For best results, plant this shade lover in regular to moist soil.
