I found some packaged dry-root ones at Home Depot (or Lowe's, who remembers....). Was intrigued that they were shade-loving and have the perfect place among some ferns. I don't even recall what colors they were, or the heights, etc. When I got them home and opened the sacks, was very discouraged that the roots, tubers, whatever, were dried to the point that I couldn't tell which end was "stem" or "root." I soaked them all for a few hours, then said a little prayer before planting them. Gee, I think I started out with about 12 little dried up things.....and now have 5 or 6 little plants growing. No blooms yet, but am content to wait until their 2nd growing season. Let me know the place in FL if you end up getting any from them and are happy with them.Tm, do you have these already or are you looking to get some? I found a great place in FL that ships and seems super inexpensive.
They look nice mixed with the hydrangeas!https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/astilbe/types-of-astilbe.htm
and the pink kind in my pic. . I have a very tall white, some short pink, short purple, not all bloom the same time. View attachment 24614
@tbendl I found this:Florida??? I would check first and see if they need a good freezing length of time season.
