Soil: Does fine in average soil, though organically rich, evenly moist, well drained soil is best for optimum growth.
Light: part shade to shade -- May be planted in full sun in cool areas with adequate moisture, but shade is important in hot summer areas.
Water: Likes soil consistently moist. Can add mulch to reduce evaporation, and 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. Another application of fertilizer is required in the summer after the plant has come to bloom. A small handful of fertilizer sprinkled around the base of the plant, or a liquid fertilizer sprayed on the foliage in July should do.
Winterizing: No specific care needed. Foliage dies back in winter, and can be cleared away in early spring before plant sends up new shoots.
Maintenance & pruning: No dead heading is required, unless you do not like the appearance of spent blooms. If left on, they provide winter interest to the garden. Divide the roots of the plant in the spring or fall when the plant is dormant. Plant the root crowns shallow so that new shoots are covered with 1/2-inch of soil. Place the plants 12 to 24 inches apart and water until established.

I loved the pictures of these and placed a large order with GGP. Everything was packed wonderfully. My hydrangeas and sedum arrived healthy and are thriving. Unfortunately, the astilbe arrived very dry. I tried to revive and planted, but all four astilbe never made it. I contacted customer service but never heard anything on a refund or replacement. Other plants are doing well at least!
Owner Response: My apologies - you received your order in May when we were experiencing unprecedented orders, emails and calls. I do not see any notation of any call/email on your order. I will go ahead and issue a refund for the 4 Astilbe that died. -- Management
