Astilbe is a popular perennial with charming, plume-like flowers in summer. Vision is a strong variety with dense panicles of rose-pink flowers in mid-summer. Lace-like leaves are not mid green, very attractive, too.

Grow astilbe in humus-rich soil. If planted in boggy or regularly watered bed they can sit in full sun, otherwise choose a semi-shaded or shaded location. They are water loving plants and require a good dose of nutrients to look their best. They will not grow in chalky or clay soil that dry out in summer.

For best results divide the clumps every 3-4 years removing old and dead rhizomes in early spring. Also in the spring remove old leaves and last year’s flowers. Fully hardy to about -34°C (USDA zone 4).
