Plant Features

Rise and Shine is a new hybrid variety of the Astilbe chinensis species that is much more tolerant to sun and drought than other varieties. It is an excellent perennial for both full sun and full shade, and its foliage is resistant to deer and rabbits. To keep the plant healthy, be sure to trim back its foliage in the spring as it will help protect it from the cold winter weather.

Common Names: false spirea, false goat's beard

Astilbe Companion Plants: Ferns, Helleborus, Hosta

Rise and Shine Astilbe Plant Care Instructions: Plants should never allow to dry out. The spent flowers can be removed or left on for garden interest. Foliage can be trimmed back to the 2-inchs above the ground in early winter.
