This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun partial shade
  • Soil: moist, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of Growth: fast
  • Flowering period: July - August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Dense spires of tiny white flowers appear in midsummer, above a neat mound of shiny, serrated, blue-green leaves. This astilbe is ideal for a moist bog garden or water's edge, but it will also do well in containers if it is kept well watered. This cultivar has long-lasting flowers, and will grow in full sun. In drier soils it will need to be in a shady spot.

  • Garden care: Newly planted astilbes need to be  well watered until they are established. Lift and divide large clumps every three or four years, discarding old, woody rhizomes.
