Astilbe x arendsii

False Spiraea, Meadow Sweet

The finely divided foliage and showy flower plumes make them one of the best perennials for shady locations. The many varieties bloom in colors from soft white to clear pink and intense red. Flowers and leaves make excellent cut flowers and foliage. Good in pots and tubs, they are also grown near pools. In shade gardens, grow with Columbine, Meadow Rue or Plantain Lily. Tolerate full sun in cool summer climates with abundant moisture. In these areas, combine with Peonies, Delphiniums and Iris. Cut back flower stalks after flowering. Every 3 to 4 years, as plants are beginning to grow in spring, divide rootstock. Always keep soil moist.
