Astilbe Visions in Pink forms a solid airy mound of clean green foliage up to 20” tall with clear pink flowers in spring. The leaves are deeply-cut, medium green.
Astilbe Visions in Pink produces feather-like panicles of pink colored flowers on stiff sturdy stems typically rising to 24” tall in late spring. Like all astilbes, this fine specimen lends a refined presence to semi-shady to shady perennial borders and its graceful flowers flutter in the slightest late spring or early summer breeze. Gorgeous in mass plantings but will not tolerate long periods of drought.
We suggest when planting your newly purchased Astilbe Visions in Pink plants that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil you may need to add a locally sourced compost or topsoil to the back-fill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a back-fill soil because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots to spread through the loose, nutrient rich soil, much easier than if you used solely the existing soil which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole. Astilbe Visions in Pink does prefer moist soils so if there was ever a plant that we would recommend adding topsoil or compost in copious amounts this is one. Bio-tone starter fertilizer is a great starter fertilizer that provides plants with mycorrhizae fungus. It is a naturally occurring beneficial fungus that colonizes on the new growing roots of plants. It creates a barrier between the roots of the plant and fungus and pathogens that can cause root rot. We love this product and use it on all plants we install in our own gardens. Bio-tone is a gardener’s best friend and can help guarantee your success.
