ASTILBE “Bressingham Beauty”

Astilbe "Bressingham Beauty" ... and other astilbes ... buy them at Kerns Nursery

Astilbes are a choice plant for our mountain top environment.  They are easy to grow, stay neat all summer with their fern-like foliage, and produce lovely, lacey spires of color ranging from white, through every shade of pink, red and purple.  There are many hybrid astilbe varieties with bloom time ranges from July - Sept., and their height from a few inches to several ft. tall.  It is rare for a deer to eat astilbe.  They are also adaptable to just about full sun if given adequate water to partial shade.  On new plantings moisture is important, but will become less of a problem once established.

“Bressingham Beauty” is a great choice growing about 32” tall with salmon pink flower spikes.  Prefers moist conditions  Plant in groups with other varieties - companion with hosta or other shade tolerant plants.

We hope to see you at one of our events.  Please e-mail us with your questions or suggestions.
Come and visit us during our many events in 2002 !
