Astilbes for the Shade Garden

 SHADE PLANT FEATURE:    Astible  
Astilbe is a tall, summertime bloomer that adds interest and texture to the garden even after the pink, white or red flowers have dried up and turned brown.  
 
Their leaf foliage is feathery and clumps at the base of the plant. 
 
The heights vary depending on kind,  15 inches to 30 inches.
 
Deer do not particularly like them.

Growing Tip:    Astibles benefit from a bit of protection to get them through the severe winters, a fine layer of mulch, such as chopped leaves or straw.
