Dense fluffy spikes of rosy-mauve flowers
Excellent for moist borders or pondsides
Attractive to butterflies
This dwarf Astilbe is one of the best varieties, providing late summer colour in moist sites and even growing happily as a marginal in a pond or stream where its feet remain permanently wet.
Astilbe chinensis var. pumilla produces compact clumps of fern-like, deeply cut foliage which make a handsome display even before the flowers emerge. In late summer it bears upright, fluffy plumes of rosy-mauve flowers held well above the leaves. Planted en masse it creates a broad brush of gloriously hazy colour. The flower plumes persist as buff seed heads, continuing to offer interest throughout the winter. It’s a great choice for pondside planting in a wildlife garden, attracting plenty of butterflies and although it’s a quick spreader it remains compact enough to be suitable for smaller gardens. The flower plumes are popular with florists and can be used fresh or dried. Winner of an RHS Award of Garden Merit. Height: 30cm (12in). Spread: 60cm (24in).
