Astilbe biternata

Appalachian False Goatbeard

Plant Type:

SHADE PERENNIALS

Astilbe biternata – The Appalachian False Goatbeard, a true U.S. Astilbe, is from the Southeastern United States. Light pink feathery heads atop wiry stems sway in summer breezes over an open mound of cut foliage. Good back-of-the-border woodland plant that contrasts nicely with bold-leaved garden denizens. Site in dappled shade to morning sun in fertile, draining soil. Where happy it will self-sow modestly. For northern gardeners spring planting might be wise. Established pot grown plant from division.
