  • Planting Instructions

    Astilbes are a beautiful addition to almost any area. Also called False Goat's Beard or Meadowsweet, there are over 25 different varieties of Astilbe, each with a different colors and characteristics. With the right conditions and some occasional water, Astilbes will thrive and provide a unique look to your planting area.

    When to Plant your Astilbe Roots:

    Plant your Astilbe roots in the Spring.

    Where to Plant your Astilbe Roots:

    Plant your Astilbes in a location protected from full sun - Astilbes can't survive the heat of the full sun. Astilbes thrive in shady areas that other plants can't handle. Make sure that the soil in that area is humus-rich and well-draining. If you want to amend your soil, you can add perlite, coarse sand or peat moss to increase draining qualities.

    How to Plant your Astilbe Roots:

    Dig a hole about twice as wide as the roots and around 4-6 inches deep so the top of the roots are about 1 inch below the soil line.

    How to Care for your Astilbe Roots:

    Make sure that your growing Astilbes get enough water - we recommend that instead of watering a little bit every day, water your Astilbes deeply when the soil looks dry. After about 4 years, divide and replant your roots as to not over-crowd your plants.
