Love Astilbes
Review by WENDY
Plant came with a good root structure and with a few stems. I purchased two and planted in garden pots on a covered porch - one receives some sunshine, the other is heavily shaded. Both plants have increased in size and now have buds for blooms! Looking forward to seeing the blooms!
