Astilbe arendsii 'August Light' adds fire to your midsummer garden with scarlet red plumes rising above deep green foliage. Be sure to cut some for your vases! Grows well in containers. The foliage remains attractive throughout the entire season. August Light 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.
