Creamy white plumes turn light pink as they age. 'Milk & Honey' blooms in mid to late summer. Bushy foliage appears slightly marbled with green and silver when it's young, then turns solid green as it matures. This astilbe is a strong grower and blooms prolifically. A member of Astilbe chinensis (Chinese Astilbe). A later blooming species useful for extending the bloom season into late summer. Foliage is deeply incised, coarsely textured, and often bronze-green in color. Flowers are borne on narrow, branched panicles. Though garden performance is far superior in moist soils, members of this species are moderately drought tolerant. Shorter varieties such as 'Pumila' make excellent groundcovers.
