Product Information

Fascinatingly unique… Take a second glance at the tall spires of this Astilbe mix, with astounding colour combinations, loved by bees, and you can even bring them inside!

‘Plum Bouquet’ forms eye-catching displays, with spiked flowers in a variety of colours, from purple and red to cream and pink, emerging at the height of summer. The Astilbe blooms stand tall above shiny dark green foliage. If the beautiful form of the flowers doesn’t draw you in, the aroma certainly will! Blooms are extremely fragrant, drawing the attention of bees and butterflies to transform the garden into a hub of activity.

What’s more, they can be brought into the home to be enjoyed for even longer as fresh cut flowers. Once faded, the brown flowerheads left alone in the garden will provide exceptional winter interest. Perfect for traditional cottage gardens, water gardens, or cut flower displays, this collection really is a versatile and reliable choice. Long-lived hardy perennials thrive in both full sun and shaded corners, but don't let the soil dry out, keep them well-watered.

Supplied as a set of five bare root plants, ready to plant.

Top Tips

It is best to plant Astilbes in either spring or autumn, so they have chance to establish before the warmest weather begins.

Care Information

  • Water several times a week through the first summer after planting.
  • If purchased during summer, plant straight away but keep it watered as it establishes, particularly when the weather is hot and dry.
  • Rich and moist soil conditions are needed for Astilbes to thrive. Well-rotted organic matter can be dug into the soil prior to planting to improve the conditions.
  • Plant in a lightly shaded area of the garden, as too much sun can lead to scorch on the leaves, particularly during high summer, while the soil can dry out quickly.

Planting:

  • The first step is to prepare the soil, ensuring the space is free of weeds, stones, or other debris.
  • Arrange each bare root Astilbe on the surface where you are aiming to plant, spaced roughly 50cm apart.
  • Now dig a hole roughly the depth and width of the existing clump, so you can just about fit it into the ground. Aim to bury just the roots and leave the base of the stems just above ground.
  • Firm back around the soil using your hands for smaller clumps, or your heel for the larger clumps.
  • Finally, water the plant well to leave the ground moist. This will help to settle the soil and avoid desiccation.
