The Astilbe arendsii 'Bridal Veil' plant graces gardens with its delicate, enchanting presence, cascading pure white, feathery plumes above a lush, deeply-cut, fern-like foliage. Its visually arresting display not only introduces a romantic, whimsical touch to various spaces but also supports local pollinators with its gentle blossoms. As a hardy and low-maintenance perennial, it effortlessly illuminates both part sun and partially shaded spots, enhancing a range of landscape designs with its beauty. Bridal Veil 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.
