Astilbe lend a refined grace to perennial borders. Perfect for the shade garden along with Hostas and Ferns. Lush deeply cut foliage is attractive for the entire season and is colored from green to bronze. Effective anywhere with rich moist soil and partial shade.
Low care. Needs moisture during dry spells. Best to clean up in the spring as seedheads are attractive. Can be divided every 3-5 years in early spring. Cut through woody crowns to separate eyes to form additional plants. Add fertilizer or compost if desired when planting or moving and in late fall to winter.
