More Information

Description ‘Visions' Astilbe, commonly known as false goat's beard or false spirea, is a powerful bloomer that will fill your garden with mesmerizing fragrance and color! You're not the only one that will adore this ground cover in your garden. The raspberry-colored plumes invite butterflies, hummingbirds, and pollinators alike to linger in your garden.  This shade-loving ground cover makes a carpet of elegant green foliage when not in bloom. Visions is more tolerant of dry conditions than other Astilbe. It performs best in rich, moist soil with protection from the hot afternoon sun. Delightful in groupings planted between bold hostas (the purple blooms of 'Visions' are especially lovely with blue hostas!), colorful heuchera, spring-flowering hellebore, or as an underplanting to hydrangeas.   Details Botanical name: Astilbe chinensis 'Visions'
Common name: False spirea, false goat's beard, Chinese astilbe, tall false buck's beard
Zone: 4 - 9
Sun exposure: Full Sun(>6 hrs.) Part-sun (4-6 hours sun) to shade (< 4 hours sun)
Soil type: Average
Soil moisture: Moist
Height x width: 14-16" x 12-15"
Flower color: Raspberry-pink
Foliage color: Green
Season of interest: Mid-summer
Uses: Accent, border, container gardening, cottage gardening, edging, ground cover, massing, naturalizing, pollinator gardens, rain garden, small spaces, underplanting, waterside
How To Grow Soil: Easily grown in average, well-drained soils. Good soil drainage is essential. Plants will perform poorly and may not survive winter in hard clay soils that retain moisture. Sandy/gravelly mulches will protect plants and help to avoid the onset of rot.
Light: Best in part-sun, will tolerate full shade but will not bloom as heavily.
Water: Moderate moisture. Plants tolerate heat and some dry soils once established.
Spacing: 1.5 - 2 ft spacing.
Fertilizing: Not always necessary, but can be fertilized in the spring when new growth emerges if growth is slow or the plant exhibits nutrient deficiency.
Winterizing: Where winter survival is a potential problem, plants should be moved to protected locations (e.g., southern exposures) with leaf and flower stems intact for extra protection.
Maintenance & pruning: Deadhead spent flowers to promote additional bloom. Trim back in early spring, before the plant exhibits new growth. Plants rarely need dividing, but you can divide every few years to thin the bed or propagate.

EXCELLENT CONDITION

My astilbe plants and phlox all arrived healthy & in excellent condition. Checking out other comments, two things stand out.
One-- you've got to choose plants appropriate for your growing zone. Not all plants thrive in colder climates, for example. Or super hot climates.
Two-- pay attention to the amount of sunlight different plants require, and don't expect plants to flourish in the wrong amounts of shade.
As of early April, plants are coming out of dormancy. So don't panic if stalks don't show much leaf growth. If by early May, your plants are not rebounding after winter, then try transplanting them to a different area of your yard with different sunlight (after researching online what each plant needs. That will fix a lot of problems no matter what you've planted. It's a matter of figuring out what soil and sunlight each plant needs.

Vision astilbe

Plant arrived dried out with several stems broken. I planted it immediately and it looks like it's reviving but I won't know until next spring. Not impressed with your company.
