Description Cultural Notes Plant Care
Astilbe chinensis 'Pumila' (False Spirea, meadowsweet, Plumeflower). Pumila boasts lilac plumes over deeply cut bronzey-green foliage. This Astilbe is great as groundcover or in front of larger hostas because it is a low grower. Best in part shade and evenly moist soil, however it is also one of the most drought tolerant of the Astilbes. In order to keep Astilbe looking good for the next year, do not cut it back in the winter, (the old foliage helps protect the plant from winter damage), but prune in early spring. Astilbe can be used as cut flowers, perennial borders or shade gardens with Hostas and Ferns. Astilbe is considered to be deer resistant and will attract hummingbirds.
