Plant Features

Astilbe arendsii 'Amethyst' produce the characteristic feathery plumes of the False Spirea, but with blossoms of a most noticeable and remarkable amethyst color. This full-leafed variety makes a beautiful backdrop for your shorter or more sparsely foliaged plants. Amethyst is shipped as a bare root, a method we favor for its ability to establish quickly, double in size compared to its potted counterparts within the first season, and omit the necessity for plastic pots—providing an eco-friendly advantage.

 

Common Names: hybrid astilbe, false spirea, false goat's beard

 

Astilbe Companion Plants: Ferns, Helleborus, Hosta

 

Astilbe Plant Care Instructions: Ensure your plants remain consistently hydrated, as allowing them to dry out can be detrimental. The faded flowers may be pruned to encourage further blooming, or left intact to add enduring visual interest to your garden. Come early winter, consider trimming back the foliage to a modest 2 inches above the ground to promote healthy, vibrant growth in the forthcoming spring season.
