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.

Needs some TLC

Hopefully next spring this plant will look better than it does now. Arrived quite small and sad looking. I am going to see how it comes back next season.

Astilbe

The Astilbe is only doing they're not growing well and no blooms as of yet

Hello! Thank you for leaving us feedback. It's hard to say for certain why you are not seeing growth, since so many factors - like weather, soil type, watering, and fertilizing all come into play. Perhaps you're familiar with the old saying about plants: first year sleep, second year creep, third year leap. This applies to plants in the garden center as well as plants you purchase online. They generally spend their first year growing roots in their new home, the second year they have more energy to put into growth, and the third year, they are growing and flowering vigorously. With proper care, you will see growth in time. Happy Gardening!

Bad plant

The plant was scraggly when I received it and just never regained its health. It's dead except for one 2 inch branch. I'm not sure if it was from shipping however the rest of the plants survived and are thriving.

Planted in a well-drained area with morning sun/afternoon shade. No signs of growth as of end of may.

Hi John, We know that it can be discouraging when plants don't show as much growth as we'd like. Many factors like weather, soil type, watering, and fertilizing all come into play. Perhaps you're familiar with the old saying about plants: first year sleep, second year creep, third year leap. This applies to plants in the garden center as well as plants you purchase online. They generally spend their first year growing roots in their new home, the second year they have more energy to put into growth, and the third year, they are growing and flowering vigorously. With proper care, most perennials and shrubs should grow once they are established. Happy Gardening!
