Product Information

Astilbes are fascinating plants with flowers completely unlike anything else it the garden. Originating from central America, they thrive is a sheltered, sunny spot.

‘Astary Rose’ is a smaller variety of Astilbe. This incredibly attractive dwarf perennial grows to just 30cm tall, but what it lacks in size it certainly makes up for with its exceptional flowers. Between June and August the dark green, glossy serrated leaves give rise to a mass of dense triangular panicles of soft pink flowers that look like frothy clouds of candy floss.

The flowers are delightfully fragrant and ‘Astary Rose’ is Recommended by the RHS as a 'Plant for Pollinators' with the blooms being an irresistible magnet for bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects. The flowers are good for cutting and are certainly an unusual addition to vase arrangements. They dry well too, and provide winter interest if left on the plant, especially when there’s a frost.

Astilbe prefer dappled shade over full sun although they will tolerate a bright spot. Too much direct sunlight can scorch the leaves. Although not fussy about soil, they do require good drainage so that their fleshy roots don’t rot. Great at the front of a flower border, they are an interesting choice as an edging plant. Also ideal in containers, try planting different varieties together for a lovely, light and foamy effect.

Supplied as 3 x established plants in 9cm pots, ready to plant. Reaching a height and spread of 30cm (1ft).
