It isn't easy to find a showy plant that thrives in shade and looks good even as the flowers die. That's why I'm such a fan of astilbes. These gorgeous plants have feathery plumes that make them look spectacular en masse and let them stand out solo in a mixed garden. Astilbes originated in Japan and China in the 1800s, and German and Dutch botanists could not get enough of crossing them, creating new cultivars and brightening up their color. While astilbes now come in a range of pinks and purples, we're going to look at the first astilbe hue the Europeans saw back in the 1800s: white Botanical name: Astilbe chinensis or other specific variety Common name: Astilbe, false spirea USDA zones: 4 to 9 (find your zone) Water requirement: Regular watering.
