Dense spires of tiny pale pink flowers appear in midsummer above a neat mound of shiny serrated blue-green leaves.

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.
