Plant Finder: about the Astilbe genus

Common names

False goatsbeard, Spiraea


Astilbe genus (False goatsbeard). This genus consists of summer flowering perennials. They have upright stems and tufts of ferny leaves with toothed edges. The flowers are produced in tiny panicles of white to pink blooms. This genus has about 14 species of pretty, early to late summer perennials, and they can be grow in moist ground beside woodland streams. The pointed plume-like panicles of tiny, white to pink or red flowers rise well above the foliage.
