Impressive Height
Statuesque purple-red plumes glow against bronze and green foliage. This tall variety blooms in early summer, later than other Astilbe. Lavish pillars of thick flower panicles rise above the 24 mound. Astilbe are mainstays of shade and woodland gardens. They combine well with other moisture loving plants like Brunnera, Ligularia, Lobelia and Hosta.

Astilbe General Information

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.

Astilbe Plant Care

Low care. Needs moisture during dry spells. Dried heads can be left standing if desired or cut down at anytime. 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.
