Beautiful Kerry! Is there an emoji for jealousy😂 as I love these flower spikes!
Absolutely gorgeous flowers 😍😍😍
Wow beautiful 😍 I can’t get mine to grow!
@gjones 😂 I always think about you when I post Astilbe 🙈 these are the last ones left flowering so I can stop taunting you now 🤭
@hkyfvr @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom thanks ladies 😀 late to the party but they missed the harshest heat and managed to flower 💕
@vegandmore thanks Christine 😃 do you get the foliage?
Most welcome Kerry. Love astilbe 💗
About 3 inches of foliage
@vegandmore that’s dwarf level foliage 😂
Indeed! I don’t think they like Sandy soil @kez001uk
Always the first colour to flower 💓 #astilbe #false-spiraea
Beautiful delicate pink. 💗
Yep! Beautiful! 💘😍
@hkyfvr @ShelleySnyder thanks ladies 😀 love a fluffy plant 😛
Very welcome 😊
My pleasure Kerry!💘😍
Beautiful. A "real" spiraea must be something really special to see then! 😁
@jeatacake I’ve never understood why it’s called that 🤪 the real spiraea I have isn’t a patch on this! 😂
Maybe it's because it's just too fancy & therefore must be false? 🤔🤷♂️
@jeatacake wait til it takes out the hair extensions & false eye lashes! It’ll look just as plain as the rest of us 🤨🤣
This is so pretty! I’m always drawn to plants that have feathery or airy blooms😍
@gjones thanks Katy 😊 there’s something extra special about the less imposing looking plants 🤍
@hkyfvr thanks Diane ☺️ the only one of my old astilbe plants to flower so I’m happy to see it 🤍
Very welcome Kerry. I used to have these but would lose them over the winter. Love them though. 👍😍
You've got FLUFF!!!! YAY!!
@hkyfvr I thought they were tough plants but seems once they start to grow and get hit by frost, that’s it 😝 such a shame 😔
@jmlincoln finally 😁 no other old ones flowered but all 4 new ones are starting to 😍
Wow, so fluffy and feathery 🤍🤍
@jeatacake it is such a cute little thing 🤍🤍🤍 sadly a loner this year ☹️
Looks just like mine, but lot pinker, mine are just starting to colour fade on the astilbe been out for weeks.. lovely flower 🌸
That is stunning....💗💗💗
Looks like pink coral I used to see snorkeling in the Carribean. Beautiful.
So pink and fluffy 🌸🌸🌸
Woohooo!!! You've got the fluff!! It looks like cottoncandy ☺️
@solly1961 they don’t disappoint do they! Look good for ages 😍 a little disappointed only 2 of 5 colours came through but they’re putting on a show to make up for it 😂
@wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom thank you Elaine 😀 they’ve gone mad this year! 💕
@maldavis I’d happily swap it for that view! 😍😍😂 can imagine it was an incredible experience
@pelly like a candy floss stand 😋😋
@jmlincoln finally got some fluff 😁 they always make me want cotton candy 😋😋😋
Yes that's just it. I think mine is just starting to fluff out but there's only one stem so far 💖
Mine is the same as yours, I'm waiting very impatiently for mine to open 🙄😂
I do like these i have a couple their at the same stage as yours
@pelly they seem to take an age to open up 🤪🥱
@jmlincoln it’s taking sooooo long 🤣 how are yours looking?
@alan1111 they’re beautiful aren’t they 🥰 just take an age to get their fluffy coat 😂
Mine seems to be stuck on hold at the moment 😅
That's beautiful ♥️♥️
@alan1111 they need a swift kick up the bum! 😆
@midnightgardener they look amazing up close. So many tiny buds in no hurry to open up 🤣
@kez001uk I've got some Geraniums like that ♥️♥️
Ah ha! My astible looks like yours! I was wondering why the online pictures of them (from google) have such bigger, fluffier stalks. I thought I was doing something wrong.
@jmlincoln they’ll fluff up soon 😛 it’s hard looking for id’s online because they rarely show anything but the plant in full bloom 😜
Awesome! Can't wait 😀 Thanks for letting me know 👍🏻
@jmlincoln you’re welcome 😁 I look forward to seeing yours in all their fluffy glory 😛😅
Me too! And you're welcome for describing them as fluff 🤣
@jmlincoln 😆 it’s the best description for them 😛
Love this bright color!
@maldavis thanks Mark 😁 they’re so vibrant, especially against the green ❣️💕
Gorgeous colours 💗
It looks a bit like an Astillbe 😊😊💕💕
@ShelleySnyder thank you Shelley ☺️
@honestgreensco thanks Steve 😁
@anges thanks Ange 😄
@midnightgardener they are 😁 false spiraea is another name 😊
Again, just about the whole range here of Astilbes. I especially like the red one trying to keep up with the pinks! ❤
@jeatacake a fair few died back after that surprise late frost so not looking as good as last year 😜 but they’re great looking things aren’t they 😋
They are & they will never let you down 😊 👍
I'm warming up to the white ones 😊😆
@ublaszko the foliage isn’t too bad either. A white one would go nice in your garden Urszula 😉
Must keep an eye out for them next spring. 😊
Will be bright and beautiful, almost neon! Gotta tell you that whenever I see your profile pic, it makes me laugh. Is this one of those phone apps?
@maldavis they are so vivid when they’re in full bloom. 😂 its a Snapchat teddybear filter 🤣 I can’t smile in photos so like the irony of happy filter on a miserable face 😅
Huh!!! Thank goodness for filters, but sometimes a non-smile is more beautiful.
Love astilbe. Tried several varieties over the years and finally got one to survive for 3 years. Mine isn't as far ahead as yours yet. And by the way, you have a beautiful youthful face😊
@maldavis I may terrify the gt’s community with an unfiltered profile photo next time I change it 😂😂😂
@gjones they’re beautiful aren’t they 😍 I’m so happy you’ve got one that’s returning 😁 aaawww, thank you ☺️😘
@cyndi they have absolutely flourished since I moved them into shade! I don’t think they get any direct sun and seem to do all the better for it 😁
I, too, think your beautiful and I sincerely hope you, nor @gjones, thought otherwise. Those filters just make me laugh.
@maldavis I didn’t take it any other way than how you intended it ☺️ they amuse me too 😛 who doesn’t chuckle at the sight of an almost 40 year old woman in a teddy bear disguise 😂
Hey, great idea! Instead of posting plants we can all do a face pics with our favorite face app!
@maldavis going to have to find a good one to match your batman 😜
@cyndi I hope it helps ☺️ I know they love water so I think it helps keep them from drying out too much also
Faded now but still as pretty 💕
Even when they’re past their best they look pretty
Look like little Xmas trees covered in snow!
@gjones I love that! It really does look snow covered ❄️
Gorgeous! Glyn says it has great colour!
@gjones please pass on my thanks to Glyn 😁 and thank you too ☺️
@jeatacake just a bit bright isn’t it 🤣 think the green background makes it worse! 😂
It's got a lot more colour than my pink one. It looks wishy washy compared to yours 😁
@jeatacake I didn’t really think they’d end up the colours on the website photo but shocked that they’ve lived up to it! #nofilter 😉
@Soph1e thank you 😁 one of my favourites 😊
Resting in the shade 🐝
@gjones thank you ☺️
I'm still waiting on mine!
@gjones I looked at yours from last year, it’s a huge plant! Excited to see it this year 😁
Mines just starting too 💕💕💕
@Keely look forward to seeing yours 😁
@Jasonsparkes1 they’re nice to look at even as they’re growing though 😛
Beautiful colour 😍
@suerichards thank you ☺️ taking weeks to fluff out but it’s a real bright spot in the shady area
It's a lovely bright colour!
@gjones just like candy floss/cotton candy 😋
I have one but it’s in the wrong place , need to move it
@wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom last year I had them in part sun and only one bloomed with barely any foliage. This year it’s in full shade and exploded! Hope you find the right spot for it 😊
@pattygardd thank you 😛 they’re really putting on a show!
@kez001uk you’ve surprised me I would have put it in full sun...at the moment it’s lost in between taller plants so I’ll move it into shade....👍🏼😉
@wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom I’m not sure that’s their typical growing conditions but it seems to have worked so far 😊
Gorgeous! Ever since I've seen yours blooming, I go out everyday to see if mine has started. But not yet😣
@gjones I can’t wait to see yours! I love astilbe so much 💖 do you know the colours yours will be?
Mine is called 'look at Me' and it's supposed to be bubblegum pink. I only planted it last year so I've never seen it bloom.
@gjones sounds like it’s going to be beautiful! Hope it’s not too far from flowering 😁
Another one fuzzing up 😁
Keeps getting fluffier 🤗
@kez001uk That’s great! 👍👍👍
So light and fluffy, gorgeous colours😍 Do you find these plants spread a lot?
@gjones they’re quite special aren’t they ☺️ i only planted them around 18 months ago and put 10 astilbe into a huge pot together so they don’t really get chance to spread. I wouldn’t mind if they did though 😁
First one to fluff up 😍
@Hayley.R makes me want candy floss 🤣🤣🤣
Beautiful - I didn't know they flowered like this😍😍😍
@gjones I’m hoping the other colours look just as pretty
What a lovely colour! 🙂
