CARE
Care Thrives in organically rich, evenly moist, acidic, well-drained soil, sited in bright shade or filtered sun; does not tolerate dry conditions. Mulch to keep roots cool and moist, avoiding the crown. Clip spent blooms for a tidy appearance. Remove old foliage and stems in early spring. Feed in early spring, and again after bloom.
HISTORY
Lore This well known group falls into the Saxifrage family. The genus was named from the Greek for without sheen or non-shining to describe the foliage. Of the 14 or so species, most are from Asia, with a couple of North Americans. The earliest astilbes arrived from China to Paris via Jesuit missionaries, leading to early hybridization in that region and Germany rather than Britain.
