Astilbe: Dwarf Chinese


The Chinese Astilbe, blooming later than other Astilbe types, is also more tolerant of sun and drier conditions. Its low, spreading habit makes it a beautiful flowering ground cover. In July and August profuse lavender pink flower spikes held on stiff stems decorate the low mounds of deeply cut, bronze-green leaves that deer and rabbits dislike. While this Astilbe is generally tougher than others it still appreciates being kept evenly moist.

Early in the season, many plants are pruned to encourage later fullness, and therefore may vary in size from the photo and size range. Rest assured, they hold the same glorious potential.
