Astilbe 'Amethyst'

8th July 2012

After many years of growing it I seem to have lost my plant. I have rummaged around under shrubs and behind bushes hoping to find a straggling stem or two but so far nothing.
One quiet day I will be digging around under a tree and I will turn up a knobbly wooden tump and pounce on it with glee. I will plant it in the border and it will sprout into the lost 'Amethyst'. Astilbe are resilient things.
In the meantime I have bought another.
