Nonstop blooms on a naturally small Astilbe that remains compact throughout the season while blooming almost nonstop. Tiny at only 12" high this series of Astilbes have the full range of color found in this species from white to pink to deep rose. Fantastic along the front of planting borders and containers.
This shade loving perennial will grow 3' tall and does well in moist soils, that are well draining. Expect flowers to appear in late summer, in shades of vibrant violet. This deer resistant perennial, tolerates shade and may attract hummingbirds!
Astilbes will be available more often than not as small container plants. At this stage they can be planted at any time from spring to late summer. If you get your hands on some bare root crowns or stems, plant them with the roots facing down in early spring.
Hot dry summers will cause damage to the plant.
Bloom time depends largely on variety of plant.
Soil and Irrigation:
Many Astilbes grow best in always wet, boggy soils.
Remove all stems and dead leaves in early spring before they produce more foliage.
