Deutschland’ Astilbe starts the spring with a mound of bronzy, deep green foliage. This deeply cut foliage provides great texture for any shady area spring through fall and provides a stunning backdrop for creamy white plumes that rise above the foliage and open in late June attracting nectar seeking hummingbirds and butterflies. ‘Deutschland’ thrives in moist, shady locations and is popular for border plantings or alongside water areas. Its magnificent blooms are superb for both fresh or dried flower arrangements while its dark foliage blends seamlessly with small to medium size gold-leafed hostas or ferns. Plant this deer, rabbit, slug and rodent resistant beauty in groups for maximum impact. In order to keep Astilbe looking good for the next year, do not cut it back in the winter, (the old foliage helps protect the plant from winter damage), but prune in early spring.
