I've transplanted this several times, trying to find a spot that the deer would not get to it. No such thing--so now I just use plenty of deer repellent spray. This year it has bloomed beautifully--which may be due to the wet summer we are having as astilbes like alot of water.

I like this astilbe very much. The pink blooms are very full and the color is a nice real pink. The leaves are a lighter green than most other astilbes, making a nice contrast. As with all 'Visions' astilbes, the flower stalks are very sturdy and the leaves are pleasantly coarse.
