Plant Features

Astilbe simplicifolia 'Sprite' is a dwarf variety that produces atypical fine, light single spires of tiny blooms atop glossy medium to dark-green foliage. The Sprite's blossoms tend to be somewhat abstract with pale pink plumes that reach out in every direction. Nip the plumes when they fade to enjoy a pleasingly-colored ground cover, or let the faded seed heads remain for architectural interest. You can have it both ways with this beauty! Sprite 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: dwarf 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.
