Notes

This popular dwarf groundcover type of Astilbe forms a low carpet of mid-green leaves topped with fuzzy, lilac pink, stiffly upright flower plumes. This is one of the last Astilbes to bloom, typically peaking from late summer into early fall. Its small stature makes it a good candidate for containers and the front of the border.
