Growing up in the beautiful countryside of Southern Europe, I loved to walk through the fields of Astilbe when it was flowering in the summer time. Wandering through these fields, my imagination was ignited.
Astilbe is one flower that reminds me of innocence, time playing outside and the beauty of nature. Astilbe is not originally from Europe – it is originally from China, Japan and Korea. Astilbe also brings to my mind other seasonal field flowers that have similar colours, shape and texture.
Snowberries are characterized by wonderful colours, a good growth and hard berries. It is important to harvest the berries at the correct time because if the berries ripen they become softer and damage easily.
