Nice contrast

A real attention grabber! The goat's beard 'Mighty Chocolate Cherry' (Astilbe) has a velvety red colour with contrasting brown leaves. They also attract bees and butterflies! The winter-hardy False goat's beard is also ideal as a cut flower. You will receive the mix bare-rooted. This is more environmentally friendly than plastic nursery pots. The annual roots come fresh from the ground and have extra strength and grow fast. They flower better and they are more economical. Plant the roots in the spring. The flowers bloom in the summer.
Plant four roots per linear metre. The flowers love partial shade. Water the mix immediately after planting. Water it more during dry periods. The roots come in organic packaging. 100% degradable and contributes to a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.

Planting

Astilbe grows well in the garden. Prepare a large hole and loosen the soil. Improve poor garden soil by working in some compost. Plant the root balls of the Mixed Astilbe at the correct depth in the hole. The top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting. The Astilbe hybrids grow well and flourish in a sunny spot, semi shade or a shady position in humus-rich, moist soil.

Astilbe look wonderful in a pot

Astilbe are very popular plants for the borders and for growing in planters. However the striking flower plumes also look very beautiful in a pot. Choose a large pot with holes in the base and plant the Mixed Astilbe approximately 20 cm apart. It is important that the soil doesn't dry out. Place the pot of spirea mix preferably in partial shade.

Care

Astilbe are easy-to-grow perennials. Be sure to prevent the soil around the roots from drying out as drought is poorly tolerated. The soil should remain slightly moist, especially when the plants are placed in a sunny area. In winter the stems above the ground dieback. Cover the plants in winter with a layer of fallen leaves. In spring, cut off all the leaves. Soon you will soon see new shoots above the ground. Temporarily cover the Astilbe if there are signs of late night frosts.

Extra

Astilbe are fantastic flowers and even brighten up the shade with their beautiful colours. The flower plumes remain decorative well into the winter, so don't cut them off until the spring. You can use the plumes in a flower arrangement. This plant is often called by its former name, Spirea.
