Just like its namesake, 'Cappuccino' is just the thing to wake up a drowsy shade garden. From spring to summer dense clouds of cream white blooms rise on crimson stems above the bronze-green foliage of this pest proof perennial, adding uncommon interest to the sun-starved areas of your landscape. Butterflies and hummingbirds adore the pristine white plumes and the glossy foliage goes unnoticed by local deer and rabbits. Woodland gardens simply aren't complete without Astilbe and this one will look quite at home as it pierces the shadows with its delightful torch-like flowers. Along with impressive shade tolerance, this plant is also unbothered by excessive moisture in the soil so it's great for setting around water features. This variety grows well in average soil but is also quite tolerant of acidic and even clay soil. Caring for 'Cappuccino' is a breeze as it only needs a bit of extra water during dry spells.
