Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
ASTILBE 'Sister Theresa' ('Zuster Theresa')
Astilbe, Sister Theresa Astilbe
One of many hybrids resulting from crosses among Astilbe thunbergii, Astilbe chinensis, and other Asian astilbes, 'Sister Theresa' is a clump-forming perennial grown for its frothy pink pyramidal flower clusters. The early summer flowers rise on slender stems from ferny mid green foliage.
Grow this astilbe in fertile, moist, slightly acid, humus-rich soil in partial sun to full shade. It will take full sun, but only in cool climates and with constant moisture. Plant it either singly as an accent plant or in drifts for clouds of color in the shade. It is effective grown in mixed borders and rock gardens or near water gardens. Astilbes attract butterflies, and their flowers are excellent for cutting and drying.
