  • 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.

Review By Claire

Virtually indestructible

I planted three of these Rock and Rolls in an area with morning sun and within about a week they have grown to nearly a foot tall and are already putting out small buds. I have several varieties of Astilbes throughout my garden and they will really grow just about anywhere and can tolerate a surprising number of conditions. I'm in Texas where we have areas with heavy clay alkaline soil, hard freezes and ice storms in the winter, and long hot periods of drought in the summer, and Astilbes nearly always make it through as healthy as ever, provided they get a bit of afternoon shade during the hottest months. Don't fuss over them too much - they are surprisingly resilient!
