24" height - plant 18" apart. Pure white flowers in early and mid summer. Extra dense flower plumes.

Beautiful cultivar! I loved this plant when I grew it in Virginia. I divided one into three quart sized clumps and by the end of the next summer they were all full-sized! Great grower. Mine actually rebloomed once after I removed the first flush just at fading. My plants were in morning sun for about 3-4 hours w/ no other sun all day.

Be sure to cut back faded flower stalks. Extra water may be needed in dry periods. Divide after 3-4 years in spring or fall. Astilbe requires a lot of nutrients, so give it some fertilizer at least once per growing season.
