The Hennie Graafland Astilbe (Astilbe 'Hennie Graafland') has clear soft pink plumes that light up shady garden spaces in the mid to late summer.
Hennie Graafland Astilbe is admired for its attractive foliage and elegant flower plumes. The summer lacy deep green foliage adds a ferny texture to garden beds long after the blooms have faded. Your landscaping expectations will be blown away with this beauty.
The Hennie Graafland Astilbe plumes offer a striking contrast against the coarsely textured, blue-green foliage. These mid summer blooming beauties are ideal for borders, containers, and gardens on the edge of woodlands.
For maximum color and impact, mass Hennie Graafland in groups in partly shaded gardens, though this one can tolerate some morning sun or full sun in cooler areas. This astilbe is more sun and drought tolerant than other Astilbes.
Astilbes are grown most successfully in rich, well drained soil and under partial sun. The biggest key to successful growth of your Astilbes is water and lots and lots of it! The soil must remain moist. If the soil dries out the plant will falter quickly, especially in the sun.
Hennie Graafland will do best in a relatively sheltered location. Consider applying a thick layer of mulch around the root zone for the growing season to conserve soil moisture.
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.
