Drift roses are becoming a favorite with me... as reliable as Knock-out/Double Knock-out! Low growing and spreading LOVE LOVE LOVE Snowdrift Rose
Astilbe Enjoy the feathery plumes of Astilbe in early summer. This tough perennial blooms in shades of burgundy, red, pink, lavender, and white. In addition to the attractive flowers, it has finely cut foliage, which in many varieties is flushed with bronze. Astilbe grows best in Zones 4-8 and can reach up to 4 feet tall, depending on variety.
Astilbe lend a refined grace to perennial borders. Perfect for the shade garden along with Hostas and Ferns. Lush deeply cut foliage is attractive for the entire season and is colored from green to bronze. Effective anywhere with rich moist soil and partial shade. blooms early summer
