Plant Features

The Astilbe japonica 'Peach Blossom' plant elegantly blends vintage charm and versatile aesthetic with its wide panicles of pinkish-peach blooms, enchantingly appearing in late spring and early summer. Characterized by an early bloom time, this old-fashioned favorite sets a picturesque scene with its flowers, which are gracefully produced in dense, pyramidal clusters, complementing the underlying medium green leaves. Notably, the lacy foliage tends to be glossier than many other varieties and is often delicately tinged with red, adding an extra layer of visual interest. Although compact in habit, making it a perfect fit for small gardens and long-term container displays, it does not compromise on its lush and vibrant display, as long as the soil is kept sufficiently moist. Peach Blossom 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: japanese astible, 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.
