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.

Died

Unfortunately, all the Astilbes I ordered did not make it through the summer. I planted in containers that are in shade for most of the day, but get afternoon sun which I guess was just too much. I replaced all the plants with annual vinca and deer have not bothered them.

Dry and withering

I don’t know what is happening to the Visions Astilbe I received but the leaves have been withering and turning brown and brittle since the day I got them. They are in a shaded area with just a bit of morning sun and should be thriving.

Hello! We're sorry to hear that you're having trouble with your plants. It sounds like your astilbe are not receiving enough water. Try to keep the soil moist, but not soaking wet. Astilbe tend to thrive in wet soils. If you continue to have trouble, please contact us at info@greatgardenplants.com with photos of your plants and we can further assist.
