Available from many nurseries in UK and in Europe.
Raised by Georg Arends of Ronsdorf in Germany in 1924.
Highly Commended in RHS Trial 1970.
An arendsii hybrid.
One of the best of all Astilbes making an excellent garden plant with good strong stems carrying the creamy white bushy flowers well above the neat foliage.
However there are several nurseries selling inferior forms so it is worth seeking out the true form before buying.
It increases well and makes good clumps. Like all Gloria forms it wilts very quickly when used as cut flowers.
Medium – 61-80cm
