    Well I thought I had lost both my purple and pink Astilbes moving them from direct heat to shade and in October they was lifeless and looked totally dead...well the purple one is showing new signs of life but not the pink one yet :)

    Astilbe are tough. I thought I've lost a few through the years, but they always re-appear each spring. I'm always happy to see them ... Astilbe is one of my favourites :)

    Netty I didn't think they was a tough plant and thanks for that advice :like: but as you say a glorious plant in flower, I really hope the pink one comes back, when I brought them the lady at the garden centre said they love the sun :shrug: then I moved them by the fencing that gets just slight shade...I had to do these with them, as both our gardens are total sun traps.
