Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Astilbes are long-lived perennials that are most comfortable when grown in rich soil and light shade to filtered sun. They will grow in full shade, but will not bloom as prolifically there. Though they are easy to grow, Astilbes have one critical requirement--lots of water. Plants must have consistently moist soil. Increase watering as the foliage emerges and the plumes mature. Fertilize in spring. Plants should be divided in early spring every 3-4 years.
Consistent water and Average water moist soil needs for growing.
