Plant Features

The Astilbe chinensis 'Pumila' plant is celebrated for its elegant, fern-like foliage and late-blooming, fuzzy, lilac-pink plumes. This beloved dwarf variety effortlessly creates a lush carpet of mid-green leaves, forming a vibrant base from which stiffly upright flower plumes gently emerge, piercing the verdant tapestry below. Blooming from late summer into early fall, it serves as a charming seasonal herald, signaling the onset of autumn with its enchanting floral showcase. While its diminutive stature makes it an ideal candidate for containers and front-of-the-border placements, its graceful presence persistently captivates and enchants, becoming a steadfast focal point in any garden setting.

Common Names: dwarf chinese 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.
