About Pink & Purple Mix - Astilbe Bulbs

Astilbe arendsii

Seed Type Root
Also known as False Spirea

Astilbes are such a joy in the garden with their bright feathery plumes! This mix combines purple and pink, so it makes the perfect accent for other white and yellow flowers in cut arrangements. Deer tend to stay away from astilbes, but pollinators love them. Try placing them in a partially shaded spot near the edge of the woods, but make sure your neighbors can see them!
