Astilbe’s fern-like leaves and delicate blooms add interest to any shady spot.
With their deer-resistant leaves and pretty pink or purple flowers, the dwarf varieties (Astilbe chinensis) are perfect ground covers for your shade garden.
They are also a little more drought-tolerant than the standard-sized Astilbes, in case water is an issue in your garden.
