This dwarf Astilbe is the perfect size for containers so if you have a shady balcony and want some colour - choose 'Sugarberry'.
You can also brighten up the edges of a pathway with a few of these short but sweet beauties. Astilbes are terrific shade plants, with their showy, graceful flower plumes, deep green, finely-divided foliage, and easy care. The astilbe bloom season begins mid June and lasts through July into August. The attractive skeletal flower heads even add winter interest. Abundant blooms make them outstanding candidates for both cutting and drying.
