Astilbe 'Milk and Honey'
New foliage appears marbled. Shades of white plumes turn pink as they age and appear between late July and August.
Astilbes are long-lived perennials for massing, border, or specimen. They have fern-like ornamental foliage and showy blooms. Will tolerate sun with ample moisture, but they are happiest in some shade. Bloom time is June through August. (Flowering times are broken down below after “bloom” as early, middle, and late.)
