Description / Astilbe 'Washington'

Astilbe 'Washington', a hardy deciduous perennial, emerges as a midsummer marvel with its lush, fluffy white plumes that captivate the eye. The dense, fragrant flowers on white astilbe, supported by sturdy stems, are not only visually appealing but also serve as excellent choices for both fresh and dried floral arrangements. As the season progresses, astilbe whites's appeal is prolonged into autumn with its attractive dried seed heads, enhancing the garden's ornamental value.

This white astilbe belongs to the Astilbe japonica group, often referred to as false spirea or false goat's beard. 'Washington' is characterized by its upright, clump-forming habit and exceptionally dark green, fern-like foliage. It exhibits a medium growth rate and expands gracefully through rhizomes. Ideal for containers, mixed beds, and borders, Astilbe 'Washington' is particularly notable for its enhancement of shade gardens.

Astilbe 'Washington' is celebrated for its ease of growth and low maintenance requirements. Thriving in moderate shade astilbe white prefers organically rich, moist, well-drained, and humusy soil.

Additionally, its resistance to deer and rabbits makes it a resilient choice for many gardens.

Notably, Astilbe 'Washington' is more than just a pretty face; it is a magnet for butterflies, adding a dynamic layer of activity and beauty to your garden. Its bronze-green foliage contrasts strikingly with the white astilbe blooms, resembling the esteemed Astilbe chinensis 'Vision in White'.
