Astilbe 'Younique Silvery Pink'

Astilbe is one of the tried and true perennials that even your Grandmother loved. Rest assured, this is not your Grandmother's Astilbe…it's your Grandmother's Astilbe on steroids! Dense, deep green, shimmering, tightly packed foliage forms a mound and a backdrop for 6 to 8" spikes that rise above the foliage in late May. These spikes develop with buds that open in June to a massive, stunning display of light, silvery-pink flowers that makes your grandmother's Astilbe look like a 97 pound weakling in comparison. The flower plumes appear much thicker due to the far greater bud count present on them than most other Astilbe. If that is too much information, all you need to know is that you won't find a better looking Astilbe anywhere!! 'Younique Silvery Pink' looks great alone but amazing when grouped in a semi-shaded area with moist, well-drained soil.

Growing Tips

Astilbe's should be pruned in the early spring after the last frost. Pruning them in early summer is an option but the longer you wait the more flowers could be lost to the prune. You can prune off spent flowers to keep your plant looking tidy but too much pruning late in the season can spur new growth that is delicate and may be killed off by frosts in the fall and winter and cause undo stress to the plant as well as an unsightly plant.
