Perfectly sized for containers or the front of the border, ‘Little Vision in Pink’ offers all the same great traits as the original ‘Vision in Pink’ but in a smaller package.
Standing about 16” in bloom, a dense block of fuzzy, pyramidal shaped, rose pink plumes is presented just above the coarsely textured, dark green foliage in midsummer.
Like all Chinese Astilbes, this one exhibits a bit greater tolerance to drier soils and can take full sun.
A member of Astilbe chinensis(Chinese Astilbe). A later blooming species useful for extending the bloom season into late summer. Foliage is deeply incised, coarsely textured, and often bronze-green in color. Flowers are borne on narrow, branched panicles. Though garden performance is far superior in moist soils, members of this species are moderately drought tolerant. Shorter varieties such as 'Pumila' make excellent groundcovers.
