Growing in a garden, Astilbe can resemble miniature versions of Dr. Seuss’s truffula trees. For a soft, fanciful look, these fluffy fern-like flowers are the perfect choice for a bouquet, centerpiece, or even boutonnieres. In the saxifrage family, certain species of these herbaceous perennials grow naturally in mountain ravines and woodlands in both Asia and North America. Astilbe is most commonly cultivated in cream, light pink, fuchsia, red, and even purple – perfect colors for a warm, whimsical wedding palette. Don’t these flowers just make you smile?
