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.

For information on the growing and care of Astilbe, click Growing Guide.

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 custserv@whiteflowerfarm.com. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

A Garden of Feathers

Nancy R from Litchfield, CT

I planted Old Ironsides astilbe a few years ago as a foundation planting on my north wall. Spot is naturally wet, with almost no sun. The first year I had nice big plants but no blossoms at all. The second year was fabulous. A gorgeous display that lasted for weeks. I used cut stems to enhance my cut flower arrangements - like colorful feathery foliage. Even after flowers were spent, the dried plumes were an interesting addition to a vase. Outdoors, my guests were amazed by the frothy unusual beauty. These astilbe may require some patience if your space is as shady as mine, but it is well worth the wait!

Long Lasting Color

Sandwich Cake from New York, NY

I purchased this collection ten years ago (or possibly more) and it has proven to be a great investment. The plants have thrived in my part-sun garden and I have divided some of them and now have so many astilbe that I pass divisions over the fence to my neighbors.

Flower buds in 10 days!

B0bb0 from Northern Ohio

The root stock is very mature. Planted the bare roots in gallon pots. After a couple days they came roaring out of the ground. Half of them showed flower buds at 10 days! They are about three weeks old and are going into the ground today. They look very happy.

First year and doing great

Smithy from Warrenton, VA

I planted this collection this spring and was surprised how fast it took off--it looks like it's been there for a few years. I'm very pleased, and will probably add another set next year.
