Botanical: Astilbe x simplicifolia 'Key Biscayne'
General Characteristics: Wait to cut back the old foliage until spring; it will help protect the plant from winter damage. In the spring, if the crown has risen above soil level, gently press it back into the ground and apply some organic matter around the plant. Plants should be divided in early spring every 3-4 years to maintain vigor. Prefers moist soil but not waterlogged. Keep well-watered. Just give them a drink every once in a while and they will grow healthy and strong.
