For the appeal of a shady cottage garden, plant in small containers with other delicate, pale flowering species.

Companion Plantsn a misty, cool garden location, this Astilbe loves to thrive with the bold Elegans Plantain Lily (Hosta sieboldiana 'Elegans') or Heartleaf Bergenia (Bergenia cordifolia) and Woodland Iris (Iris innominata). In a sunnier location, try mixing with the delicate Miniature Bearded Iris (Iris pumila) and Dwarf Hairy Penstemon (Penstemon hirsutus 'Pygmaeus') and enjoy the pink and lilac show.

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. For a neat appearance, remove old foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
