For lavender-pink blooms in shady gardens, ‘Maggie Daley’ astilbe is at the top of the list. Slightly more tolerant of dry soils than other astilbes, it’s still at its best in a moist location. Mid-summer blooms are held in dense panicles and will dry in place for fall interest. Pinnate, deep green foliage. Clump forming. (Astilbe chinensis)

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information

24-36” tall x 12-24” wide. ‘Maggie Daley’ is a medium habit perennial with glossy fern-like foliage and soft lavender panicles of bloom borne in mid-summer. To maximize the beauty and elegance of astilbe throughout the season, pair with earlier and later flowered cultivars, and allow the spent blooms to dry naturally on the plant, creating a ‘living’ dried flower arrangement. Plant in part-sun to shade in moist conditions – a situation with morning sun is ideal. With adequate moisture, the foliage will stay glossy all season and will complement other larger-leaved shade plants such as hosta or ligularia. Unlike hosta, astilbes are rarely browsed by deer. For best results, dig and divide astilbe every 3-5 years to keep clumps healthy, and replenish organic matter to create a deep, rich soil.
