Astilbe (also known as false goat’s beard or false spirea) is a perennial all-star for the shade garden. These hardy perennials sport large, fern-like foliage that is very attractive during the growing season, highlighted by feathery plumes of flowers that bloom through the spring and early summer. Astilbe is one of the few perennials that can tolerate moist soil conditions, so they’re perfect for pond-side planting or planting in areas of poor drainage. They are also one of the few colorful perennials that are deer resistant. This makes Astilbe an excellent perennial choice for any garden with low light conditions.
Below are just a few of the varieties of Astilbe carried by Meadows Farms. Please note that not all locations carry every variety, so please contact your local Meadows Farms for availability.
