comes in 1 or 2 gallon containers
Astilbe ‘Brautschleier’ – Astilbe ‘Bridal Veil’ – this clump-forming descendant of A. arendsii grows to 30” tall and in breadth. It produces bright green foliage, which fade to creamy yellow. From bright green buds in mid summer elegant sprays of nodding white flowers open.
Grow in moist fertile, humus rich soil or boggy sites in full sun, or in drier soils in lightly shaded areas and don’t allow it to dry out. They dislike alkaline or clay soil that dries out. Divide in spring or winter when dormant every 3 or 4 years to maintain vigor and flower quality and remove and discard old woody rhizomes.
