Astilbe ‘Peach Blossom’ – Astilbe ‘Drayton Glory’ – This clump forming perennial is a descendant of A. japonica and grows to 24” tall and spreads to 18” wide. It produces mid green foliage. In summer it bears panicles of peach-pink flowers.

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.
