Astilbe chinensis 'Vision in Pink' is a 1999 Gert von Buren introduction that provides pale pink plumes with a dense and upright form a top large, blue-green leaves with a coarse texture. Quite a robust plant, like all the ‘Visions’ series. A member of chinensis (Chinese) species which is a later blooming species useful for extending the bloom season into late summer. Foliage is deeply incised, coarsely textured, and often bronze-green in colour. Flowers are borne on narrow, branched panicles. Though garden performance is far superior in moist soils, members of this species are moderately drought tolerant.
