Astilbe japonica 'Peach Blossom'
syn. Japonica Hybrid
mid August - September
sun - partial shade
well drained, fertile, humus rich
acid - neutral - alkaline
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.
Division in spring.
Japonica hybrids flower fairly reliably and tend to flower earlier than Arendsii hybrids.
