Astilbe arendsii 'Bressingham Beauty' is an award-winning variety that is celebrated for its elegant, arching salmon-rose blooms and lush foliage, effortlessly enhancing any garden, especially in shaded areas. Adaptable and low-maintenance, it thrives in moist, well-drained soil, offering vibrant color and unique texture even in challenging planting conditions. Ideal for mass planting, borders, and containers, it's not only a standout in gardens but also adds airy elegance to cut flower arrangements. Bressingham Beauty 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.

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.
