Hennie Graafland Astilbe

May 20, 2024
Adams Fairacre Farms

Hennie Graafland Astilbe refuses to be unnoticed in the garden. It all starts with foliage that may be the best of any Astilbe featuring a delicate, deeply cut look that begs to be touched. Along with this texture comes tremendous foliage color, the deepest of deep green, that is even showier due to its shine that makes it look like it was just waxed. A striking, showy June bloom stands above the foliage in big, light pink triangles that seem even more noticeable backed by the shiny foliage. Perfect for massing in partial shade, this plant can be the star of your garden, a job that Hennie will be happy to accept.
