An attractive, graceful, dwarf Astilbe, 'Sprite' is enduringly popular. The combination of dark, bronzed, finely cut leaves as a backdrop to the feathery plumes of soft pink flowers later in summer always draws admirers.
'Sprite' is an easy plant to grow in sun or shade but like all its race it has a preference for moist soil. In the garden, any reasonable soil will do so long as it doesn't dry out in summer. Its Award of Garden Merit is good reassurance of its ease of cultivation and its worth in the garden.
