Astilbe 'Professor Van der Wielen' is an A. thunbergii hybrid that forms an aruncus-like clump with a 20" tall mound of fern-like foliage, topped in late spring/early summer with 40" plumes of cascading white flowers. A. 'Professor Van der Wielen' is superb in the moist woodland garden, although short periods of drought are not a problem.
