Astilbe chinensis 'Visions'

Visions’ Astilbe

Raspberry-pink plumes bloom in mid-summer on dwarf, graceful, fern-like mounds of bronze-green sharply toothed leaves. Astilbe Visions offers a cool color contrast to containers or when placed en masse in the front of the perennial border. Vision Series varieties are more drought tolerant.
