Shade gardens don’t have to be boring. One of the best ways to add vivid color and lovely texture to shady areas is by planting Astilbes. These low-maintenance perennials create a season-long ground cover with clouds of color above feathery green foliage. Because Astilbes look best planted in drifts, we offer a collection of 12 plants—3 each of a white, 2 different pinks, and a red—at a bargain price. Our Cornerstone Collection, previously known as "Old Ironsides" for its remarkable durability, is a great way to start a color parade in your shade garden, one that will continue throughout your lifetime and beyond. Plants labeled only by color. 27 sq ft. Exclusive.

To account for the differences between the climates of the Southeast and West, we have split the "warm" end of our hardiness ratings. In the example Hardiness Zone: 4-7 S / 4-9 W, the first number of each range (4) indicates cold hardiness. The second numbers (7 and 9) indicate the limits of a plant's range in the Southeast (S) and West (W).
