FAQ

Description

The Pumila Astilbe, also known as Chinese Astilbe, is a compact, low-growing perennial that offers a plethora of captivating features. With its fern-like, finely divided foliage and feathery flower plumes, this plant adds a touch of elegance to any garden setting. The plumes emerge in early to mid-summer, standing tall above the vibrant, dark green foliage.

Key Features:

  • Compact and Low-Growing: The Pumila Astilbe reaches a height of just 12-18 inches, making it perfect for borders, woodland gardens, and even containers.
  • Flamboyant Plumes: The feathery, cone-shaped flower plumes come in various shades, including hues of pink, red, and white, adding a pop of color to your garden.
  • Easy Care: This hardy perennial is a breeze to maintain, making it an excellent choice for gardening enthusiasts of all levels.

Basic Care Tips:

Sunlight: While the Pumila Astilbe can tolerate partial shade, it thrives in dappled or filtered sunlight. Ensure it receives at least 4-6 hours of indirect sunlight for optimal growth.

Soil: Well-drained, humus-rich soil is ideal for this plant. Amending the soil with organic matter can further enhance its performance.

Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during dry spells. Mulching around the base of the plant helps retain moisture.

Pruning: Deadhead spent flower plumes to encourage new growth and maintain a tidy appearance. In late fall or early spring, cut back the foliage to ground level for rejuvenation.

Fertilizing: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in early spring to support healthy growth.

Growing Zones: Pumila Astilbe is hardy in USDA plant hardiness zones 4-8, making it suitable for a wide range of climates across the United States.
