Shady Yard? These Colorful Plants Pack Curb Appeal: Astilbe
Astilbe These feathery plants add pink, lavender, white, and red flowers to your shade garden. Astilbe loves partially shaded, moist spots, although it will grow in deep shade — just don’t expect as many blooms. It looks great along borders or as an accent plant that gives your garden a punch of color. Butterflies love them; deer don’t. They have a lovely fragrance, so cut a few for an indoor display.
