Plant Features

Astilbe arendsii 'Astary® Pink' is naturally compact with feathery plumes being purely, baby-girl pink with dark green, glossy, fern-like foliage. These long-lasting blossoms can remain pretty for weeks, even after they dry. The elongated flower spikes rise above the compact, mounded plant, like so many cotton candy cones. If pink is your color, you will absolutely love this one! Astary Pink 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.

Comment: I just received my "Astary Astilbe" plants. I was a little hesitant about ordering plants online. But, i did and was curious to see the condition of the plants when i received them, they're here and in great shape. I ordered one of each color, i'm so glad i did. I will definitely place another order from GrowJoy! Thanks
