This garden worthy perennial has a nice, compact form, with neat mounds of deep green leaves. Astilbe ‘Europa’ is one of the earliest of the Astilbes to bloom, with dense, soft to mid pink plumes.

The flowers will turn bronze with the cooler weather and remain beautifully ornamental through autumn and winter, even after the foliage fades.

The flowers last incredibly well in arrangements and you can even dry them.

Astilbes thrive in moist soils, their handsome, fern like foliage looks wonderful in a woodland garden or shady border.

Plant Astilbe into a humus rich, moist soil, an acid PH is preferred but not demanded. Water in your Astilbe and keep them moist in active growth. You could add a little mulch in summer to help retain moisture around the roots.

Astilbe grow best in part shade, filtered light or morning sun positions – think Hostas and ferns. While they will grow in full shade they won’t flower at their best and tend to stretch. In sunny positions you will need to ensure they have adequate moisture or they tend to become straggly and not bother blooming.
