Astilbe arendsii 'Deutschland'

Astilbe

♦ Zones:  4 - 9     Height:  18 - 24"     Exposure:  Full Shade to Part Shade ♦

‘Deutschland’ features a foliage mound of lustrous green leaves and upright panicles of pure white flowers on stems rising to two feet tall in late spring.  Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Prefers moist, humusy, organically rich soils. Soils must not be allowed to dry out. If regularly watered, foliage will usually remain attractive throughout the growing season.  A summer compost mulch helps retain soil moisture. Removing faded flower stalks will not prolong bloom but may improve plant appearance, particularly if a ground cover look is desired. On the other hand, many gardeners leave the flower stalks in place after bloom because of the continuing ornamental interest of the dried seed heads.  Mass or group in shade gardens, woodland gardens and shaded areas of border fronts or cottage gardens.  Excellent large ground cover or edging plant for shady areas.  Also effective on pond or stream banks.
