Astilbe arendsii 'Astary® White' displays dense plumes of dainty, creamy, white flowers above foliage that is ferny and rich forest-green in color. The compact nature of this False Spirea variety makes it the perfect contrast plant for pastel or jewel-like hued flowers either in the cutting garden or in patio containers. It would also look great in an evergreen bed. Picture this little beauty sitting in front of your junipers or even your holly bushes. Good things come in small packages! Astary White 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.
