Bright Pink Willie Buchanan Astilbe

Astilbe

The pink haze of the 'Willie Buchanan' astilbe, shown here, attracts beneficial insects from mid-to-late summer, when its tiny white flowers open to show their red stamens. To make a bolder statement, go with 'Fanal,' whose feathery plumes of long-lasting, crimson flowers first appear in early summer. If you're looking to fill even more space, consider 'Professor van der Wielen,' which produces large, arching sprays of delicate creamy-white flowers, to 4 feet tall to 3 feet wide. Astilbes do well in bog environments, such as pond or path edges, with partial sun.
