Most Chinese Astilbes are slow growing clump forming perennials, 'Pumila' is a dwarf Chinese Astilbe that spreads quicker then other Chinese Astibles. A dark green mound of thick leaves perfectly offset the tall panicles of lilac-pink flowers. Lilac-pink flowers float above the deep foliage from late spring thru the summer months. A great selection for the shaded garden especially useful in woodland areas or where deer brouws is a concern since deer and rabbits tend to leave Astilbe's alone. Thiving in the darkest shade even growing under the black walnut

Growing & Maintenance Tips for Astilbe chinensis 'Pumila'

Astilbes should be pruned in the early spring after the last frost. Pruning them in early summer is an option but the longer you wait the more flowers could be lost to the prune. You can prune off spent flowers to keep your plant looking tidy but too much pruning late in the season can spur new growth that is delicate and may be killed off by frosts in the fall and winter and cause undue stress to the plant as well as an unsightly plant.
