Astilbe arendsii 'Amethyst'


♦ Zones:  4 - 8     Height:  18 - 36"     Exposure:  Full Shade to Part Shade ♦

Astilbe ‘Amethyst’ is noted for its lilac-purple flowers. It typically forms a foliage mound with panicles of fluffy lilac-purple flowers appearing on upright stems.  Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade.  Prefers moist, humusy, organically rich soils. Soils should not be allowed to dry out. If regularly watered, foliage will usually remain attractive throughout the growing season.  Astilbes are mainstays of shade and woodland gardens. Generally, however, they are early bloomers.  No serious insect or disease problems.  Mass or group in shade gardens, woodland gardens and shaded areas of borders or cottage gardens. Excellent ground cover or tall edging plant for shady areas.  Effective on pond or stream banks.
