Astilbe are best planted in a moist, loam-based soil within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. They are best positioned in part or full shade. If planted in full sun they may burn. They can be grown in deep shade however they will not flower as much. Astilbe are well suited to shady borders and beds and are perfect for a bog garden as they prefer moist soil.
