DR – Deer Resistant. Please note that no plant is 100% deer resistant
Please Note: Due to the the way certain perennials grow, some fast to start, others slow, not all of our varieties are available at the same time throughout our season. We strive to provide a large selection of perennial varieties, and therefore must limit the quantity of each. Availability of certain varieties are also subject to crop failure.

Astilbe: Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Prefers moist, rich, organically rich soils. Soils must not be allowed to dry out completely. If regularly watered, foliage will usually remain attractive throughout the growing season. A summer compost mulch helps retain soil moisture. Removing faded flower stalks will not prolong bloom but may improve plant appearance, particularly if a ground cover look is desired. On the other hand, many gardeners leave the flower stalks in place after bloom because of the continuing ornamental interest of the dried seed heads. Divide clumps when overcrowding occurs (every 3-4 years). –Missouri Botanical Garden
