Astilbe chinensis 'Maggie Daley'
Common name: False Spirea 'Maggie Daley'
Vibrant lavender plumes are stunning in the garden.
The fragrant flowers bloom in mid-summer to late summer.
The flowers make excellent fresh-cut flowers and are also good for drying.
Beautiful when planted in masses.
Although astilbes are usually easy to grow they do require good drainage and lots of water especially if they are in more sun.
Exposure: Part shade to shade
