    Frequently Asked Questions

    Astilbe Visions in Red, also known as False Spirea, is a stunning perennial plant that features delicate, pink feathery plumes and lush, fern-like foliage. To plant these bulbs, choose a location with well-draining, moist soil and partial to full shade. Space the bulbs 20-24 inches apart and plant them 1-2 inches deep.

    Astilbe prefers consistently moist soil, so water regularly and apply a layer of mulch to help retain moisture. Fertilize with a balanced, slow-release granular fertilizer in early spring and divide the clumps every 3-4 years to maintain vigor. Prune back dead foliage in late fall or early spring to encourage new growth.

    The ideal time to plant Astilbe Visions in Red bulbs is during the early spring or fall. Spring planting allows the bulbs to establish a healthy root system before the summer heat arrives, while fall planting gives them a chance to establish roots before winter dormancy.

    When planting in the fall, ensure that the bulbs have at least 4-6 weeks before the ground freezes to settle in properly. In both cases, make sure to keep the soil consistently moist to promote strong root growth and overall plant health.

    Astilbe Visions in Red typically grows to a height of 22-28 inches, with a similar spread. This compact variety makes it an excellent choice for borders, containers, or small garden spaces.

    The striking pink plumes bloom from early to mid-summer, creating an eye-catching display that lasts for several weeks. The feathery flowers stand out against the dark green, fern-like foliage, making this plant a popular choice for adding color and texture to shaded garden areas.

    Astilbe Visions in Red is known for being deer-resistant, making it an excellent choice for gardeners who struggle with deer browsing on their plants. The strong scent and textured foliage deter deer from feeding on this beautiful perennial.

    Additionally, Astilbe is attractive to various pollinators, such as bees and butterflies, which are drawn to its vibrant plumes. Including Astilbe in your garden can help support local pollinator populations and contribute to a healthy ecosystem.

    After Astilbe Visions in Red has finished blooming, there are a few steps you can take to ensure the plant remains healthy and returns with vigor the following season:

    • Deadhead spent flowers by trimming the flower stalks back to the base of the plant. This helps maintain a tidy appearance and can sometimes encourage a second flush of blooms.
    • Continue to water the plant consistently, ensuring the soil remains moist but not waterlogged.
    • In late fall, as the foliage begins to die back, you can trim back the foliage to about 2-3 inches above the ground. This will help the plant conserve energy during winter dormancy.
    • Apply a layer of mulch around the plant to protect the roots from harsh winter temperatures and insulate the soil, especially in colder climates.
