    In old specimens of astilba rhizome in the middle of the bush lignified - shoots do not grow here. In addition, the rhizome grows annually upwards, rises and after a few years along with the kidneys it appears above the surface of the earth. In this case, the kidneys can suffer greatly due to the heat in summer or frost in winter. As a result, flowering will not wait or it will be very weak. Therefore, 4-6-summer plants divide in September.

    For reproduction, use only young parts of the rhizome, and remove its center. The seedlings must have at least 3-x kidneys at the base of the roots.
    Spread the bushes at a distance of 30-40 cm from each other. Astilba grows well and blooms on slightly shaded areas.

    Astilba faded. Now the plant has an unsightly appearance. Do I need to trim the peduncles?

      Astilba blooms from June to August, depending on the variety and place where you grow it. The more sunny inflorescences wilt much faster than in a shady or semi-shady. In general, I must say that the main preferences of this plant are a semi-shady habitat and an abundance of moisture. This can prolong the period of decorativeness. But sooner or later - at the end of flowering - a beautiful plant loses its presentable appearance.

      Even if you plan to get seeds from a plant, it's enough to leave on the bush one panicle somewhere in the background. Astilba seeds are very small, and from one peduncle they are quite sufficient for sowing. But the plant after pruning all the forces will go to build up the root system, which will allow the bush to grow, it is better to resist disease and pests. Crop - do not hesitate!

    In March, I bought the Astipa root, but since I was still in the garden for a long time, I planted it in a large pot of good earth and set it on the windowsill. She quickly moved into growth and gave even flower shoots. But then the leaves began to fade, skuikozhivatsya, and now it looks pretty bad. I do not know whether to land it now in the ground, or at first it needs a little cure.

      The cause of the wilting most likely lies in the root system. The plant started growing too quickly, not having time to take root. And the flower shoots drained the already weak root system. Another reason is also possible - you flooded the plant, and the roots began to rot.

      It is unclear what state it is now in, but you can still try to save it. To do this, get the plant out of the pot, and carefully examine the root system. If the roots are alive - they have not rotted, it is necessary to trim the entire ground part and transplant the plant into the ground, having previously held an epin-extra or other biostimulant in solution (in accordance with the instructions).
