More Information

Description Red Astilbe (or Astilbe Red) boasts vibrant crimson red blooms atop burgundy stems! These fiery blooms arise in the heat of the summer, providing bold summer color and extending the season into fall. When flowers are not in bloom, this perennial still looks appealing with handsome fern-like foliage. Don't let its appearance fool you; this flowering perennial is low maintenance and easy to grow. No deadheading is required to enjoy the beautiful blooms. We even suggest leaving the spent flowers for winter interest! Try planting it in groupings between bold hostas, colorful heucheras, spring-flowering hellebore, or as an underplanting to hydrangeas. Details Botanical name: Astilbe
Common name: False spirea, astilbe
Zone: 3 - 8
Sun exposure: Part-sun (4-6 hours sun), shade (< 4 hours sun)
Height x width: 20" x 9-12"
Flower color: Red
Foliage color: Green
Season of interest: Summer to fall
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.

Red Astilbe was not to be

I bought 3 Astilbe (2 pink and the Red Astilbe) -- pink ones thrived (totally gorgeous) and Red went down to the roots. Seemed the plant just wasn't healthy from the start

My Go-To Shade Blooms

I planted these at the end of the spring season and in already blazing heat. Still, they are growing and thriving. I’ve ordered several astilbe plants from GGP and all are doing well. I thought I’d lost several to frost last year, but then they popped back up in the spring. These are wonderful, hearty plants that offer beautiful color and look very natural in a woodland or cottage garden. I have a drift of white ones, behind my hostas, that are stunning in the spring. Thank you, GGP!
