(Mature Size: 12"T x 16"W)
For the gardens that want to enjoy Astilbe but don't want to give up the space is a more compact version of Chinese Astilbe.
Fuzzy pink flowers are held just above the dark green foliage and appear in mid-summer.
Astilbes are long-lived perennials that are most comfortable when grown in rich soil and light shade to filtered sun. They will grow in full shade, but will not bloom as prolifically there.
Though they are easy to grow, Astilbes have one critical requirement--lots of water. Plants must have consistently moist soil; dryness leads to a quick demise, especially in sun.
Increase watering as the foliage emerges and the plumes mature. If the soil dries out, the leaves will develop brown, crispy margins and will begin to drop.
