Description
This is one of the must-have Astilbes. Especially since these plants grow in shade, the striking contrast of snow white plumes is always a treat.

About Astilbes: Easy to grow, tough and hardy, Astilbes are now a mainstay in all good perennial gardens. In fact, American gardeners are in the midst of a passionate love affair with Astilbes. Native to the far east, these beautiful plants and their hybrids have revolutionized the perennial possibilities of moist, shaded American gardens. They are companions of ferns and our favorite annuals, impatiens--one of the few flowers that make big color in full or partial shade.

The vast majority of the scores of hybrids now available are the work of one man, master hybridizer Georg Arends (Yes, that's why you keep seeing arendsii tacked onto hybrid names.) Mr. Arends, working in Ronsdorf, Germany spent decades hybridizing Sedums, Phlox, Campanulas....and his first love, Astilbes. In 1933, Arends introduced 74 different Astilbe cultivars, and there have been hundreds since.

These plume-flowered plants have ultra-handsome fern-like foliage, (usually dark glossy green) and stiff stems that always hold the elegant plumes aloft without any staking. Flower arrangers find the flower plumes are just as handsome in a vase as in a garden.

From tiny dwarfs to big draping hybrids, Astilbes are all quite easy to grow, as long as their ground does not dry out for long. They must have plenty of moisture, so choose your locations carefully.

    Comments about American Meadows Astilbe japonica Deutschland - Root:

    I love astilbe, but some of them seem to be more bulky and coarse. Deutschland is feathery and soft. It adds a sparkle to my shaded area. I have them mixed with hostas and heucheras and ferns and pulmonaria. Can't ever get enough of this plant.

        My yard is very shady and astilbes love it. Now and then the deer do, too, but they revive and look wonderful.
