Astilbe Visions Description

Astilbe Visions has the BEST FRAGRANCE ever of any Astilbe hands-down!

Visions Astilbe is shade-loving groundcover that makes a superb carpet of elegant green foliage when not in bloom.

Astilbes are regarded as one of the most beautiful flowering plants for the shade garden. By midsummer, densely packed dark buds open up to raspberry flowers that fill the garden with fragrance and entice butterflies to linger.

Visions Astilbe is more drought tolerant than other astilbe types.  They will put on their best performance in a moisture-retentive, highly organic soil protected from the hot afternoon sun.

Delightful in groupings planted between bold Hostas, colorful Heucheras, spring flowering Hellebore,or as an underplanting to Hydrangeas.  

Special Features:Butterfly Lovers, Cold Hardy, Cut Flower, Deer Resistant, Disease Resistant, Dried Flower, Drought Tolerant, Foliage Interest, Fragrance, Hummingbird Lovers, Moisture Tolerant, Multi-Seasonal Interest, Pest Resistant, Rabbit Resistant, Winter Interest

Ideas and How-to's

SUGGESTED PRODUCTS

PLANTING GUIDE

Soil: Easily grown in average,  well-drained soils.Good soil drainage is essential. Plants will perform poorly and may not survive winter in hard clay soils that retain moisture. Sandy/gravelly mulches will protect plants and help to avoid onset of rot.
Light: Best in full sun, but will tolerate some shade.
Water: Medium moisture. Plants tolerate heat and some dry soils once established.
Spacing: Should be equal to mature spread of plant, so 1.5 - 2 ft spacing allows for good air circulation, and root growth.
Fertilizing: Feed with a general purpose fertilizer in spring as new growth emerges.
Winterizing: Where winter survival is a potential problem, plants should be sited in protected locations (e.g., southern exposures) with leaf and flower stems being left in place over winter for additional protection.
Maintenance & Pruning: Deadhead spent flowers to promote additional bloom. Trim back Blue Fortune in early spring, before the plant exhibits new growth. Cut back the plant with pruning shears to a height of 6 inches.  Plants rarely need dividing, but you can divide every few years to thin the flower bed, or propagate.

I was a little nervious ordering flowers on the internet but I received my Coreopsis order today and was very pleased. They arrived packaged so nicely and in very good shape, they look strong and healthy. I am following the instructions and looking forward to seeing their beauty next spring.

Great Plants!!
