The airy Vision in White Astilbe (Astilbe chinensis ‘Vision in White’) produces a multitude of large, fragrant, soft, white, triangular flowers that float above bronze-green foliage for weeks.

The ‘Vision in White’ is a robust plant with linen-white plumes that offer a striking contrast against the mound of glossy, dark bronze green, lacy foliage. At maturity, you can expect this Astilbe to reach a height of 20 to 30 inches.

These mid-summer blooming beauties are ideal for containers, in gardens, or along the edge of woodlands. For maximum color and impact, mass Astilbe in groups in partly shaded gardens.

Vision in White Astilbe plants are heat tolerant and will bloom until late summer and into fall, attracting butterflies and hummingbirds. They are also disease, deer and rabbit resistant.

The Astilbe is widely adaptable to different soil types, but prefers well drained, but moist and highly organic soil. Humus forest gardens are a perfect example of where these plants will thrive, but these will be more tolerant to drier soils than other varieties of Astilbe. The use of mulch near the base of the plants to maintain moisture, is recommended.

The bright, fragrant flowers above the bronzy green foliage reflect dappled sunlight in gardens, for a dazzling effect. Drifts of this ‘Vision in White’ Astilbe are stunning and add an elegantly refined display in the landscape.
