Astilbe 'Bridal Veil' dazzles shady gardens with its graceful white hanging feathers, creating a dreamlike atmosphere. This compact variety produces bright ivory-white floral pyramids that stand majestically in flower beds. Flowering from July to August, each feather duster is made up of hundreds of small flowers that bloom in succession, providing a long-lasting floral display. The strong stems emerge from attractive, dark green, glossy, fern-like leaves. Feather dusters, as they age, take on a caramel hue, adding winter interest. Deer resistant, this astilbe requires little maintenance, is tolerant of dense shade, and attracts butterflies. Ideal for shady borders, it offers fragrant flowering and can be used as a cut flower. To maintain its vigor, pruning to the ground in the fall is recommended. A graceful plant that brings lasting elegance to gardens.
