Astilbe performs well in USDA climate zones 3 through 8. Because it is native to woodland coves and ravines, it stands to reason that shade is the preferred environment. But astilbe also thrives in sunny gardens if adequate moisture is supplied. Slightly moist, loamy soil with pH ranging from 5.6 to 7.5 is recommended. Take care not to over-water.
