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

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.
