Visions Chinese Astilbe is a dramatic addition to shady and part-sun gardens. The dark pink flowers bloom in stunning plumes set above the lush green foliage and tidy pyramidal shape. The upright, noble flowers are unrivaled in the dappled-sun garden, and they smell sweet, too! Bees love these sweet flowers, but deer and rabbits will stay away.

Astilbe is a favorite showy plant for the shaded or part-sun garden. It is unrivaled in its lush pyramidal growth and upright plumes of flowers. This Visions variety is unique in its prolific raspberry pink blooms. Like other Astilbe, Visions requires consistently moist soil and at least partial shade. Site it in a garden that receives both and you’ll be rewarded with a long-lived perennial that stuns onlookers year after year.

Visions Astilbe Care

Visions Chinese Astilbe is very easy to care for if it is planted in the right conditions. It will thrive in moist, rich soil with light shade or filtered sun. It will grow happily in full shade, but doesn’t bloom as abundantly. The most important thing to remember when growing Astilbe is that it needs consistently moist soil. Because they require moist soil, this is not a plant recommended for dry, hot climates. When conditions are too dry, the edges of the leaves will develop brown margins and drop. Plant somewhere that is naturally moist and you won’t need to do much to keep it happy.

Fertilize in early spring before it flowers. Wait until early spring to prune back your Astilbe. This will protect it from winter damage, as well as leave a nice texture in your winter garden. If the crown rises above soil level by early spring, just add organic matter around the plant and press the crown gently into the ground. Divide in early spring every 3-4 years to maintain vigor.

Visions Astilbe Spacing

Visions Astilbe has an upright pyramidal habit that grows to about 15”x15” at maturity. They won’t need much space thanks to this tidy habit. 12-15” of space between plants should be just right.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
