The genus Astilbe belongs to the Saxifragaceae  family. Most species are native to E-Asia. They need fairly moist soil and a sunny, sheltered position. Many cultivars flower too late for Icelandic conditions and it's therefore important to choose early flowering cultivars.

Propagation:


Division in spring.

Flowers fairly reliably, and earlier than Astilbe x arendsii hybrids.
