Astilbes combine beauty and durability in a way that reminds us of the USS Constitution ("Old Ironsides"), an early American warship that outsailed the enemy while cannonballs bounced off her sturdy oak planking. We've contracted with a top grower to provide us with a fine selection of strong performers in a colorful mix of white, pink, and red to create a collection of 12 plants -- three each of a white, two different pinks, and a red -- at a bargain price. They will glorify a shady spot in summer, and render carefree service for 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).
