Astilbe are a very large group of perennials with basal cut-leaf, toothed foliage above which colorful, feathery plumes of flowers emerge on short stalks. Astilbe, along with Hosta, are the cornerstones of shade gardens. Astilbe need consistently moist soil, or they will curl, crisp, and wither. We do grow Astilbe under trees, but sites with tree root competition will require monitoring for adequate soil moisture.

‘Peach Blossom’ is a medium-size Astilbe with pink plumes of flowers in June-July. This is a spectacular medium-size Astilbe, with abundant blooms. It will spread slowly to fill a space. Suitable for a front of the border plant, or in combination with other Astilbe. Like most Astilbe, it is a wonderful companion for Hosta.
