AstilbeDelft Lace' is a clump-forming rhizomatous perennial with finely toothed, deeply divided, dark blue-green , silvery in spring, purple /burgundy flushed lacy leaves and fine red stems bearing tall upright, relatively open plumes of pale feathery apricot pink flowers with accents of dark salmon pink buds from July to September, summer into autumn.


Prefers moist, fertile, humus-rich soil which does not dry out. Mulch or compost to retain soil moisture. Group or mass in semi-shaded or shady areas such as woodland gardens or along stream or pond banks. Tolerates heavy shade. Leaves brown up and suffer scorch in drought and hot summers.


Plumes flower once and gradually fade over several weeks. Remove spent flowers stalks to improve appearance or leave in place to dry for ornamental interest. Divide overcrowded clumps every three to four years and discard older rhizomes to maintain vigour.
