Plant Features

The Astilbe Sprite False Spirea Plant is a dwarf variety that produces atypical fine, light single spires of tiny blooms atop glossy medium to dark-green foliage. The Sprite's blossoms tend to be somewhat abstract with pale pink plumes that reach out in every direction. Nip the plumes when they fade to enjoy a pleasingly-colored ground cover, or let the faded seed heads remain for architectural interest. You can have it both ways with this False Spirea!

Common Names: false spirea, false goat's beard

Companion Planting: Ferns, Helleborus, Hosta

Sprite 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.
