Is bridal veil an annual or perennial?
Reliable and free flowering, Astilbe ‘Bridal Veil’ (Astilbe arendsii) is a compact, clump-forming perennial boasting ivory white flowers held in luminous, pyramidal plumes, which stand out in the night garden.
How do you care for a bridal veil plant?
Plant in organic-rich, well-drained soil. Keep soil moist throughout growth and bloom season. Apply a balanced liquid fertilizer monthly. Remove faded flowers for best display.
Should I trim my bridal veil plant?
Maintain the plant’s flowing shape by cutting it back immediately after blooming stops. The spring-blooming bridal wreath spirea produces buds on old wood. Therefore, avoid pruning at the end of winter, or you might destroy potential flowering branches. You can, however, remove winter-killed twigs.
