(Mature Size: 10"T x 16"W)
This popular dwarf groundcover type of Astilbe forms a low carpet of mid-green leaves topped with fuzzy, lilac pink, stiffly upright flower plumes.
Dwarf form of Astilbe that can be used in multiple ways including containers and the border of the garden.
This is one of the last Astilbes to bloom, typically peaking from late summer into early fall.
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.
