The scoop on Astilbe Amethyst

Astilbe Amethyst is aptly named, with tall, fluffy plumes of lilac purple gently waving over serrated green foliage. This astilbe flowers in late spring to early summer and is showy enough to earn a spot close to wherever you relax at the end of a long day. This tough perennial will even thrive tucked beneath Black Walnut trees where few plants can survive the toxic soil. We'll send a trio of these low maintenance beauties. Give them each 1.5 - 2 feet of space to allow for mature size clumps.

Why Grow Astilbes?

  • Astilbes grow well in dappled shade.
  • Blooms in early summer
  • Not on the favorite foods lists for deer and rabbits
Cold hardy, critter resistant, flowering nicely in shade and with both pastel and bright color options, astilbes represent a much needed solution for a common landscaping challenge. Try a few (we'll send a trio of your choice) and see why they're so popular.
