Spirea White Astilbe Arendsii White - 1L Pot
Astilbes are part of the herbaceous perennial family and are cultivated by gardeners for their long-blooming, plume-like flowers in soft shades. The plants are widely recognised for their profuse blooms, airy foliage and stiff stalks. They are best suited to water-logged conditions and tolerate clay soils well. The flowers stay in bloom for several weeks and slowly fade in color as they dry. Astilbe are the perfect choice for flowerbeds and borders, however they can also be grown in containers.

Extremely little maintenance is required. The flower heads will dry on the plant and remain attractive for many months. The flowers can be deadheaded when they start to dry out or can be left for winter interest and cut in the spring. Divide every 3-4 years to keep plants healthy and maintain their vigour. Apply a thin layer of compost each spring, followed by a thin layer of mulch for moisture retention and weed control.
Advice on hot and droopy plants
If your plants are looking a little wilted right now, don’t worry! Plants like to be filled with water to keep their structure, and when it’s hot that water evaporates.
Just give them an off-schedule watering and they’ll be right as rain in no time! Be careful not to flood them - plants don’t like extremes.

A perennial is a plant that lives for more than two years. Perennials are flowering plants which grow and bloom over the spring and summer and then die back every autumn and winter. Perennials typically grow structures that allow them to adapt to living from one year to the next through a form of vegetative reproduction rather than seeding. Perennial plants often have deep, extensive root systems which can hold soil to prevent erosion, capture dissolved nitrogen before it can contaminate ground and surface water, and outcompete weeds. They grow very well in conditions that are poor in resources. This is due to earlier emergence in the spring and the development of larger root systems which can access water and soil nutrients deeper in the soil.
