Flowers: July-August.  Plant in part shade.  HxS 75x75cm

A japonica hybrid which has lovely creamy-white lacy spires of flowers in summer.  The leaves are dark green and the plant is particularly effective in dappled shade under deciduous trees or by water, but must have a constantly moist or even boggy soil, especially in summer. The flowers are slightly scented and cut well.  Can be planted in sun if your soil is moist enough.

Care & Maintenance.

Spent Astilbe flowers look wonderful in frosty conditions so cut down in spring, rather than autumn.  This is also the best time to propagate by division.
