More Information

Description Add rich color to your landscape with the dark burgundy and chocolate-brown foliage of 'Moccachino' astilbe. Its foliage sets it apart from other astilbes, but that's not its only unique feature! Creamy white plumes of flowers bloom in mid to late summer. Instead of remaining upright, the plumes gracefully arch over the foliage, resulting in a display similar to goatsbeard (Aruncus).

'Moccachino' astilbe pairs perfectly with coral bells and hostas in shade gardens, where it attracts pollinators and deters deer. Wherever you decide to plant it, it's easy to grow and low maintenance, requiring no deadheading throughout the season.
Details Botanical name: Astilbe 'Moccachino'
Common name: False spirea, astilbe
Zone: 4 – 8
Sun exposure: Sun (> 6 hours sun) to part-sun (4-6 hours sun)
Height x width: 24″ x 18″
Flower color: White
Foliage color: Dark brown
Season of interest: Spring to fall
Bloom time: Late spring, summer, midsummer
Features: Rare & unusual, rabbit resistant, heat tolerant, ground covers, deer resistant, container plants, cold tolerant, best for beginners, wet soils, rain gardens
Uses: Accent, border, container gardening, cottage gardening, edging, ground cover, massing, naturalizing, rain garden, underplanting, waterside, woodland
How To Grow Soil: Grows best in organically rich, evenly moist, well-draining soil.
Light: Part sun (4-6 hours sun) to shade (< 4 hours sun)
Water: Likes soil consistently moist. Adding mulch can help retain soil moisture.
Spacing: 18-24 inches
Fertilizing: Astilbe is a heavy feeder that requires lots of nutrients. Fertilize early in the spring to produce healthy flowers with a 5-10-5 fertilizer blend. After it has bloomed, apply an additional handful of fertilizer around the plant’s base.
Winterizing: No specific care is needed. Foliage dies back in winter and can be cleared away in early spring before the plant sends up new shoots.
Maintenance & pruning: No deadheading is required unless you don’t like the appearance of spent blooms. If left on, they provide winter interest to the garden. Divide the roots of the plant in early spring or late fall when the plant is dormant.

Hanging strong against heat and drought

This could be a really bad year for new plants, with no rain for a month and heat in the high 90s or worse here in zone 7a New Jersey and across the country. Despite the weather, all my perennials ordered from Great Garden Plants arrived packaged well, still moist, alive and looking healthy. The Moccachino Astilbe is still alive with healthy shoots, and though it is past blooming season and a looking a little worse for the heat and drought, with continued watering, I am confident it will continue to survive and be back in spring looking glorious. I have ordered from GGP several times this year and am very happy with its selection and the quality of its plants. Most importantly, GGP's shipping methods are superior, and every plant has arrived in great condition despite the high temperatures in transit.

not blooming

plants are firmly planted since end of may and still not blooming

Hello! It's hard to say for certain why you're not seeing blooms, since so many factors - like weather, soil type, watering, and fertilizing all come into play. When transplanting young plants from a nursery pot to a garden, the plant allocates more energy to root development instead of shoot development (above ground). It's important for them to develop a robust root system so they can actually absorb the nutrients and water in the soil around them. Then after their root system is more developed they'll invest in their shoots and flower development. If your plant appears to be dying, please email pictures of the plant to claims@greatgardenplants.com, making sure to put your order number and name in the subject line so that we may provide the best assistance possible. Rest assured, we do have a 60-day guarantee on all of our plants. If you received your plants within that timeframe, we will be happy to apply your warranty once we receive the pictures. Happy Gardening!

Died but new growth coming out . We’ll see.

Once it’s on the ground, dies down but new growth coming out so we’ll see how it’s doing throughout summer.
