Astilbe, or false goat’s beard, is a well-known garden plant with plumes of flowers available in many colours from dark red through strident pink, purple, mauve and white. There are hundreds of varieties and I can’t stock them all, so I have chosen some of those that I consider to be the best. Choose from red, pink, mauve or white, all listed separately. It prefers a slightly shady and damp site, but will cope with a wide variation in soil types as long as it’s not squelchy wet.
