ASTILBE 'Vesuvius'( Japonica Group)
Japanese Astilbe, Japanese False Spirea, Vesuvius False Spirea
One of many early-blooming hybrids of the East Asian species Astilbe japonica, 'Vesuvius' is a clump-forming perennial grown for its large, feathery, deep-pink flower clusters in late spring and early summer. They arise on slender stems above ferny clumps of lustrous rich green foliage.
Astilbes in the Japonica Group prefer partial shade and moist, fertile, well-drained soil, but can tolerate drier and sunnier locations. This low-maintenance perennial looks best when planted in groups or mixed with other perennials for shade like Japanese painted fern and hostas.
