Product Details

Product Details

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 at a bargain price, which includes 3 plants of a white variety, 3 plants each of 2 different pink varieties, and 3 plants of a red variety. Our Cornerstone Collection is a great way to start a color parade in your shade garden, one that will continue throughout your lifetime and beyond. 27 sq ft. Exclusive.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

No luck, not sure why

A viewer from Belmont, MA

I really wanted to love these plants. They seemed very healthy when they arrived and they thrived when I planted them in an area of my garden that gets just a couple hours of afternoon sun. But as the summer wore on, they shriveled and died, even though I kept them well-watered. Apparently, their leaves cannot take much sun at all. None of them survived, but if I ever plant astilbe again, it will be in a TOTALLY shaded area.

very disappointing

Amy from Granby, MA

I planted these last fall and not a single plant has come back this spring. While it was an extraordinarily snowy winter, these astible seem to be the only major loss I had.

beginning to shoot up

Ma Pro from Tellico Village Tennessee

I am watching the Astibes sprout in each location that I planted. When these arrived I had my doubts that there would be anything sprouting from what looked like a nest. To my surprise all but one has come popping up from the ground and most have a full 3 inches of growth. I think this is amazing since I planted them only several weeks back. I have used these in my woodland garden beds, along a rock garden, and down a slope. Now that I can see the growth, I will wait till they as established, and next year add an additional collection to make them as showy as they display in the photos.

Lost 6 out of 12

LA Girl in AL from Madison, AL

Purchased this collection last spring for a heavily shaded area in our garden based on the reviews. All plants looked ok and bloomed last summer. Was really looking forward to seeing them this summer as they'd be more mature. Not sure what went wrong but 6 out of 12 plants did not come up this spring. :( I actually liked the plant so despite the fact that 6 plants did not survive would still recommend.

GREAT EXPECTATIONS FOR FUTURE YEARS

stemmer from Baltimore, MD

I was informed that flowers would be more abundant in future years, and so I did not expect more than appeared. The plants survived the dry summer, and I am looking forward to more blooms next year.
