Astilbe arendsii ‘Glow’

Astilbe ‘Glow’ has very dark red buds opening to reveal striking, deep red flowers with rose highlights; they truly glow as their name implies. The flower plumes are narrowly triangular and are held upright. Leaves are bronze-red in spring, turning mid-green by summer. In spring the foliage alone makes a fine feature. Astilbes are among the most beautiful plants you can grow in your garden. Requires moist, rich soil. They do not need staking and require soil that does not dry out entirely for any length of time. Moist and/or humus rich soil in a sheltered spot in sun or partial shade suit them best. Attracts Butterflies!

Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: May be planted in any well-drained soil. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Prefers moist, humusy, organically rich soils. Soils must not be allowed to dry out. If regularly watered, foliage will usually remain attractive throughout the growing season. A summer compost mulch helps retain soil moisture. Many gardeners leave the flower stalks in place after bloom because of the continuing ornamental interest of the dried seed heads. Astilbes are mainstays of shade and woodland gardens.

Pests or Diseases: No serious insect or disease problems. Foliage decline (leaf margins brown up), sometimes with significant dieback, may occur in hot summers and/or periods of drought if soils are not kept moist.
