Astilbe is a perennial with beautiful, showy flowers. This variety produces lovely white flowers. They prefer a site that receives light to moderate shade; they will burn in full sun. They prefer soils that provide average to slightly below average moisture. Make sure your soil drains well and does not puddle or get water-logged in rain. It is best to plant the budding root sections about 15 centimetres below the ground. You will get four with this order. Cover them with soil and press firmly then water well.
