In a part sun location, which most Astilbe prefer in my climate, CF Lime increases well and provides great color and texture. It's very trouble free, receiving no special attention other than a spring feeding and occasional watering in mid-Summer. The blooms reach up to 3' on topping the foliage mound by over 12".
