Description Cultural Notes Plant Care
 
Astilbe simplicifolia 'Sprite' (False Spirea, meadowsweet, Plumeflower). Astilbe simplicifolia, was the Perennial of the Year in 1994 and one can see why. With its wonderful apple blossom light pink flowers and dark bronze foliage with crinkly edges, it is defiantly an eye catcher. The flowers contrast wonderfully with the glossy foliage. The rust-colored seed heads are also attractive in the fall. Astilbe 'Sprite' is one of the smallest Astilbe in its family. Do not allow Astilbe 'Sprite' to dry out. It is most successfully grown in a shady area but can tolerate some morning sun. A moist, well-drained area is key for this plant. 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.
