18 - 24 in. Partial Sun Early Summer Pink 4 - 9

Delicate peach flowers with a hint of pink. Plumes are full and lend a frothy appearance to the clump with glossy, green foliage. A member of Astilbe japonica a species characterized by an early bloom time and glossy green leaves often tinged with red. Flowers are produced in dense, pyramidal clusters.

Care: All astilbe require consistently moist soil rich in organic matter. Light shade or filtered sun is best - more shade will reduce the amount of blooms and sun tends to be hard on both the color and the plant. Moisture is critical especially during blooms - drought stricken plants have a tough time rebounding. Dividing the plants in the spring every 4 years or so will keep them vigorous. Wait to cut back the old foliage until spring; it will help protect the plant from winter damage. In the spring, if the crown has risen above soil level, gently press it back into the ground and apply some organic matter around the plant.
