The Q&A Archives: lenten roses, astilbe

Question: Where can I get lenten roses and astilbe?

Answer: Both plants are marginal at best in your zone due to the long, hot, sultry summers. I suggest you consider another plant for that area. Some possible choices include Persian Shield, various types of ginger (variegated ginger would be great), or perhaps pentas (an annual flower). Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
