Astilbe 'Hennie Graafland' - #1

$12.99

Astilbe simplicifolia 'Hennie Graafland'

Hennie Graafland' refuses to be unnoticed in the garden. It all starts with foliage that may be the best of any Astilbe featuring a delicate, deeply cut look that begs to be touched. Along with this texture comes tremendous foliage color, the deepest of deep green, that is even showier due to its shine that makes it look like it was just waxed. A striking, showy June bloom stands above the foliage in big, light pink triangles that seem even more noticeable backed by the shiny foliage. Perfect for massing in partial shade, this plant can be the star of your garden, a job that Hennie will be happy to accept

Interesting Notes

Astilbe's should be pruned in the early spring after the last frost. Pruning them in early summer is an option but the longer you wait the more flowers could be lost to the prune. You can prune off spent flowers to keep your plant looking tidy but too much pruning late in the season can spur new growth that is delicate and may be killed off by frosts in the fall and winter and cause undo stress to the plant as well as an unsightly plant.
