Airy Astilbe

If you've ever seen mushrooms and curious dark green circles in the grass, it's fanciful to imagine fairies danced where the rings sprouted overnight.

It's also whimsical to place fairy figurines or little houses in shady garden areas to attract this fabled creature.

But, it's transcendent to plant the airy Astilbe. For this herbaceous perennial embodies the qualities of fairies. If ever a flower came from fairyland, Astilbe with its feathery plumes, fern-like leaves and a preference for the partially shaded undergrowth, would be it.
Another easy to grow flower with long lasting blooms, Astilbe adds a romantic charm to any perennial bed. I grow the pink variety. Astilbe also comes in white and a darker shade of pink.
