Plumes of off-white flowers, offset by dark green foliage with angular margins

Commonly referred to as 'false goat beard', this graceful astilbe variety is characterised by its off-white flowers, and compact bed of dark green foliage. The spike-like margins of this perennial's leaves contrast against the cloud like shape of each flower, and as such, this variety will grace borders with unique shape and movement. These blooms will also make excellent cut flowers for floral arrangements.

How your order will arrive
Please see our below guidance on your perennial or alpine's care:

  • Watering: During your perennial or alpine's first growing season, you should provide them with frequent waterings. Try to also avoid wetting the foliage to reduce the risk of disease.
  • Deadheading: To promote a long flowering period, you should deadhead any flowers that appear spent. Simply rescind each flower at their base, taking care to not cut other parts of the plant.
  • Dividing: To really flourish, your perennials can be divided every three to four years. They can be divided when they begin to show less flowers, or appear less healthy in the middle. Make sure to only do so when they aren't currently flowering.

Please note: Herbaceous perennials can die back in winter, so don't be alarmed if this happens and instead look forward to spring!
