Astilbe thunbergii 'Professor van der Wielen' - 9cm pot
A hardy, completely winter dormant perennial which forms clumps of very attractive green foliage which emerges from the ground with reddish-bronze tones like the fronds of a lovely fern. Tall, large feathery plumes of elegant, slightly weeping creamy-white flowers appear later in the season. Prefers a dappled shade such as a woodland area and moisture retentive soil, or full sun next to a pond or water source. Size at maturity will be around 1m flowering height, and around 40-50cm across. 9cm pot.
