Astilbe x arendsii | White Gloria
Perfect for smaller gardens, this lovely hybrid with its complact growth habit is a wonderful addition to your shady borders. This plant grows to 70 cm tall whilst in bloom, and 50 cm wide. The leaves are lovely glossy green and add a lovely texture, while the pure white blooms are spikes of densely packed flowers on strong stems which are great for picking. They dry wonderfully too! Plant under decidous trees in dappled shade, or in a full shade border, but ensure the soil around them doesn't dry out for best blooms. Add mulch in spring to keep them happy. The pollinators love them, they're a great source of food in the late summer! Lovely container plant. Divide every few years to refresh and restore.
