Astilbe - Country and Western
Pink and Puffy
The Astilbe ‘Country and Western’, Astilbe arendsii 'Country and Western' (PP14969), is a colorful feathery flower with bright puffy salmon-pink blooms and shiny deep green foliage.
Country and Western is part of the new Music series of Astilbes which are known for their large puffy blooms. The flowers contrast wonderfully with the dark green glossy foliage. Astilbe ‘Country and Western’ blooms on 18" stalks in early summer.
Astilbes are grown most successfully in rich soil and under partial sun. The biggest key to successful growth of your Astilbes is water....they require a lot of water. The soil must remain moist. If the soil dries out the plant will falter quickly, especially in the sun.
Wait to cut the foliage back until spring as that will protect the plant during the winter. Fertilize Astilbes in late spring before the flowers emerge.
Astilbes can be used as cut flowers, perennial borders or shade gardens with Hosta’s and Ferns.
Astilbe is considered to be deer and rabbit resistant and will attract hummingbirds.
