Astilbe chinesis 'Milk and Honey' (False Spirea)

Thumbnail Photo

Magnify

A member of Astilbe chinensis(Chinese Astilbe). A later blooming species useful for extending the bloom season into late summer. Foliage is deeply incised, coarsely textured, and often bronze-green in color. Flowers are borne on narrow, branched panicles. Though garden performance is far superior in moist soils, members of this species are moderately drought tolerant.

Creamy white plumes turn light pink as they age. Bushy foliage appears slightly marbled with green and silver when it's young, then turns solid green as it matures. Strong grower; blooms prolifically
