The light pink panicles of ‘Europa’ astilbe are an elegant touch in any shady garden. Softly held above fern-like foliage in early summer, the blossoms of this moisture-loving perennial will dry in place for four-season interest. Great for edge-of-stream or pond gardens. Clump forming. (Astilbe japonica ‘Europa’)

Plant Information

18-24” tall x 12-24” wide. A mid-size hybrid, ‘Europa’ astilbe won’t take over your shady garden, preferring to create a softly arching clump over time. ‘Europa’ foliage is a glossy mid-green, and in late spring or early summer, the plant blooms in shades of light pink. It can tolerate full sun in the cool north, but in the south, give it morning sun only. Like all astilbes, the tiny blossoms are held in soft plumes above the pinnate foliage. Its fibrous root system doesn’t appreciate periods of drought, so to keep foliage thriving, make sure that ‘Europa’ is sited in consistently moist soils near stream or pond banks, or at the edge of a shady wetland. A great pairing for large-leaved shade plants such as hosta, or with other later-flowering astilbe for weeks of color. Astilbe is rarely browsed by deer.

    Comments about American Meadows Astilbe arendsii Europa:

    Have many in sun and shade. Although there is not much sun in coastal No CA! They don't care they bloom everywhere! Die back to the ground in winter then pop up fresh and pretty in Sping. Move them in Fall if you want, cause they don't care, and the deer don't like them!

    Q & A

    Plant With These:

    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).
