Astilbe is a tried and true shady garden plant. The robust pink spikes of Younique Silvery Pink™ will dramatically light up any shady corner it is planted in. Spikes of 6-8 inches tower above deep green, finely leaved foliage. Astilbes love being in any slightly damp area and are useful on the edges of a Rain Garden planting scheme.
Hummingbirds and butterflies will flock to this Astilbe long into the summer. A regular deadheading of spent blooms will encourage more flushes of blooms until the foliage starts to turn a lovely reddish orange in the fall. This herbaceous perennial dies back completely for winter in all of the hardiness zones it is grown.
Younique Silvery Pink™ Astilbe Care
Younique Silvery Pink™ Astilbe likes to be planted in moist but well drained soil. Extra irrigation may be necessary during extreme hot spells. The soil pH can range between acid, neutral and alkaline. Astilbes will grow in any soil texture except the heaviest of clay. Fertilizing needs to be done once a season as the growth begins in early spring. A well balanced, slow release feed is ideal and will help support heavy blooming.
Mulching of the Astilbe is recommended in the lower hardiness zones. It will protect the crown from freezing and also help to conserve soil moisture in the spring. Using leaves, finely shredded branch clippings or an organic compost is the best. The spent bloom stems and leaves can be left on the plant over winter to further protect it. A quick clearing away of old plant material in the spring as the plant regrows is the only maintenance needed.
Younique Silvery Pink™ Astilbe Spacing
This compact Astilbe has a height of 12-18 inches and a width of 12-18 inches. When planting with other Astilbes, a spacing of 18 inches on center is recommended. Astilbe can be container grown as long as watering is done on a regular basis and the container has excellent drainage.
