The Q&A Archives: Astilbe Chinensis Pumila

Question: Do you carry a plant called "Astilbe Chinensis Pumila"? I saw it somewhere and believe it does well in partial shade. If so, I'd like to order it. Please advise.

Answer: Astilbe chinensis Pumila does very well in partial shade and appreciates a rich, moist soil. It spreads by underground stolons and can even be used as a ground cover. Although Burpee does not currently offer this plant, it is frequently available at nurseries and garden centers. You might also try contacting some of the perennial specialty nurseries such as Bluestone Perennials or Carroll Gardens, 444 East Main St., PO Box 310, Westminster, MD 21157 (800-638-6334).
