Where to Plant:
Choose a location that receives light to moderate shade. Avoid full sun.
How to Plant:
Astilbe prefer rich, well draining soil. Amend heavy soils with peat moss, perlite, compost, or course sand to improve drainage. Plant astilbe so that the crown is at the same level as the top of the soil. Make sure the holes are twice as wide as the plants and 4 to 6 inches deep. Place the plants so that the roots are fanned slightly and pointing downwards, with the crown planted 1 to 2 inches below the ground level. Cover the roots with soil and press firmly.
Keep soil consistantly moist, but avoid over watering. Do not allow to dry out between waterings.
