More Information

Description Dwarf Chinese Astilbe is a spunky ground cover that spreads quicker, tolerates more sun, and requires less moisture than other astilbes! This flowering perennial brings color to the late summer color with upright, fuzzy purple flower plumes lasting until early fall. It looks appealing even when not in bloom with dark green, fern-like foliage. Don't let its appearance fool you; it's 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 chinensis 'Pumila'
Common name: Chinese Astilbe
Zone: 4 - 9
Sun exposure: Sun(6+ hours sun),Part-sun (4-6 hours sun) to shade (< 4 hours sun)
Height x width: 10" x 12-16"
Flower color: Pink and purple
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:Sun (6+ hours), Part-sun (4-6 hours sun) to shade (< 4 hours sun)
Water: Likes soil consistently moist. Adding mulch can help retain soil moisture.
Spacing: 12 - 16  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.

Super healthy plants!

I had never ordered from this company before, so I had a very pleasant surprise when my box of Astilbes arrived! They were all in such excellent shape, it was amazing! It took me quite a bit of time to find plants for a shady area, with only 2’ between the sidewalk and the house, and I think that these Dwarf Chinese Astilbes are going to work really well! Two of the plants already have buds, so I’m hoping to see some blossoms very soon!

Fascinating Flowers

I love this one! The flowers are fascinating up close. They are a peach to lavender, with blue and white "sparkles". I've had it for a couple of years, and it remains compact. It doesn't spread out like some astilbes.
