Most Popular Colors: Pale pink, bright pink, mauve.
Blooming Season: Early to midsummer.
Soil Preferences: Astilbe prefers moisture-retentive soil, but won't thrive in soggy conditions. The plant prefers acidic soil, and may yellow if exposed to too much alkalinity.
Climate Preferences: Hardy in most temperate climates.
Sun Exposure: The plants can tolerate some sun, particularly if they're planted in a boggy region, but will burn if exposed to too much.
Landscaping Tips: If you choose to plant astilbe away from your home or another shade-providing structure, plant near taller shrubs or trees. Some varieties grow fairly tall, so consider interspersing shorter shade plants, such as ferns or low-growing hostas, to provide a thicker garden.
Planting: Plant astilbe 18 to 24 inches apart, and water in well.
