Young foliage may be tinged with bronze. Airy plumes in summer move with the slightest breeze. Astilbe are mainstays of shade and woodland gardens.

Care

Astilbe thrives in partial to full shade, making it an excellent choice for shaded or woodland gardens. It prefers moist, well-draining soil that retains moisture but does not become waterlogged. Regular watering is essential, especially during dry spells, to ensure the plant remains healthy and vibrant. Adding a layer of mulch around the base of the plant helps retain soil moisture and suppresses weed growth. As a low-maintenance perennial, astilbe requires minimal pruning; however, removing spent flowers can encourage reblooming and prolong its display.

Growth Habit

Ostrich is a hardy perennial that is typically grown in USDA hardiness zones 4 to 8 and gets 18 to 24 inches (45 to 60 cm) tall and wide. Its feathery, dark green foliage forms an attractive mound that adds texture and interest even when the plant is not in bloom. In mid to late summer, atilbe produces striking plume-like flowers that emerge in shades of deep, rich pink, creating a bold contrast against its foliage.

Toxicity

Astilbe is not considered toxic to humans or pets,
