astilbe

One of the best flowers for light to moderate shade. In average garden soil, requires partial shade; tolerates full sun where moisture is ample. Most varieties fare poorly in dry soil. Many gardeners find the spent plumes attractive. Plant 1" deep and space 12-18" apart.
Planting several varieties with staggered bloom times will help keep astilbe color going strong, if you plan your selections carefully. The bloom times listed are highly dependent on where you live. Mid-season in New Jersey is early season in North Georgia.
Astilbe should be divided and fertilized very 3-4 years. You'll get more flowers and fuller foliage in just a few months.

a little history about astilbe...
Astilbe (ass-till’ bee) are members of the saxifrage family, and are native to Japan and China. However, their introduction to American gardens came from a German plant collector, George Arends, during the early part of the twentieth century. This is where the "Arendesii" that follows the scientific name of many astilbe comes from. Other cultivators were named after his friends and family.
