Astilbe japonica ‘Peach Blossom’

Japonica ‘Peach Blossom’ has apricot-pink full, airy plumes with vivid green, fern-like, semi-glossy foliage. This is really the astilbe that started it all. Introduced way back in 1903, Peach Blossom is still one of the top choices for American gardens. This perennial thrives in moist, shady locations and is popular for border plantings or alongside water areas. It is generous with its blooms, and holds its plumes nicely above its foliage. The cut flowers are excellent for bouquets and drying.
