Dreaming of spring flowers
In the mail yesterday, I got a circular from Breck's, wanting to sell me something. I almost tossed the envelope in the trash without opening it, but for some reason I laid it on the table, next to the trash.
This morning I decided to see what sort of tulips anyone would be selling in the spring (I ordered tulip bulbs from them last fall).
This time they are selling astilbes, something I have not previously heard or read about.
Virtually pest-free. Loves shade.
I've been wondering what I'd plant on the north side of the house.
Yep, I ordered some.
Anybody had experience with this plant?
