Astilbe (Astilbe)

Name Astilbe
Botanical Name Astilbe

The show perennial, Astilbe, has feathery spikes of red, pink or white from June thru July. Grows 18-30 inches tall. Plant this in moist, fertile soil and it will be low-maintenance-mulch helps! It will be tolerant of dense shade and works well as a cut flower. The dried seed heads have a uniquely ornamental interest long after the blooms expire. Divide and share every 3 or 4 years. Put yours in woodland gardens or use as either ground cover or edging in shady areas. If you are lucky enough to have a pond or stream place some near it. Pictures from Walters Gardens Inc.
