Astilbes

perennials-astilbes-banner.jpg

Astilbes are a herbaceous perennial which bear distinctive, tall, feathery plumes of flowers in summer. They are at the same time eye-catching and delicate, and make ideal companions to Hostas, candelabra Primulas and Ligularias. Astibles like damp soil and partial shade, so ideal for planting near a pond or bog garden, or if you have heavy clay soil.

Astilbe plants are supplied in 11cm pots and are either £4.00 (5 for £18) or £4.50 (3 for £12). All varieties listed are subject to availability. We have a good range of perennials throughout the summer,  however you are travelling to the nursery for a specific variety, do feel free to give us a call or email to check availability before you visit. We will be happy to help and advise.

Other damp and shade-loving plants

All the plants listed below also thrive in damp or shady conditions, or both. Lythrum, also known as Loosestrife, is an impressively tall perennial that is particularly at home at the edges of ponds, in full sun or partial shade. Candelabra primulas make beautiful additions to damp areas, with their vivid flower atop strong stems. Choose from the cataolgue below to transform a damp or shady corner into a luscious display of colour and foliage. Below is a sample of damp loving plants that we stock over the summer months:
