Planting notes. Astilbes prefer acidic or neutral soil. Add organic material to any soil that is lacking in nutrients. Space 12 to 18 inches apart; dig holes as deep as the container or about 6 inches deep for bare-root specimens.
Keep plants watered and soil moist; extremely hot weather and lack of water will quickly kill astilbes. Otherwise, they are quite tolerant and strong.
Divide every three to four years.
