Astilbe Little Vision in Pink
Astilbe Little Vision in Pink

Chinese Astilbe

Perfectly sized for containers or the front of the border, ‘Little Vision in Pink’ offers all the same great traits as the original ‘Vision in Pink’ but in a smaller package. Standing about 45 cms in bloom, a dense block of fuzzy, pyramidal shaped, rose pink plumes are presented just above the coarsely textured, dark green foliage in midsummer. Like all Chinese Astilbes, this one exhibits a bit greater tolerance to drier soils and can take full sun.

Growing and Maintenance Tips

To grow Astilbes well pay attention to their need for water. Do not let the soil dry out because the leaves will go crispy and drop off. Rich soil in partial shade is the best situation. In sun it will be hard to keep them moist enough and, in too much shade, they will not bloom well. Leave old foliage on until the spring to protect the crowns of the plants.
