The Q&A Archives: astilbe- are they alive?

Question: i planted astilbe, hosta and bleeding heart 2 weeks ago and have not seen any growth. is it to early or did i get dead plants. they only had roots when i put them in no shoots. thanks, maryanne

Answer: It is a little too early to see growth from your new plants. They will all take a few weeks to become established and then, when the soil warms enough to signal growth, they will sprout. Be a little more patient with your new plant and you'll be rewarded with lots of new growth later this spring. Enjoy!
