A striking Astilbe, with full, puffy plumes of soft pink blossoms. Europa blossoms earlier in the season than many Astilbes, usually in late May or early June. This plant prefers rich, well-drained soil and light to moderate shade and is especially lovely when in deep shade.


Planted 2 spécimens under the pergola in Spring of 2016. See Hans van der Meer.
