Astilbe Chinensis “Veronica Klose”, or the Chinese Astilbe, is a perennial frequently used in garden beds. Growing up to 18 inches tall, the Chinese Astilbe is characterized best by its clump of deep rosy flowers over a mound of green leaves. The Chinese Astilbe is a marvelous choice for a garden, as it is deer resistant and attracts hummingbirds and butterflies. In addition, the plant is excellent for cuttings, making it great for further propogation.
Astilbes are a great choice for a shadier garden, and the Chinese Astilbe is no exception. They will perform best if given moist, rich soil and a regular healthy watering. Veronica Klose will also thrive in tubs or a mixed garden.
