Comment
Astilbe (Astilbe, scientific name: Astilbe × hybrida or Astilbe arendsii) is native to Japan, China and Central Asia, and is a cold-resistant deciduous perennial plant of the family Saxifragaceae. Green leaves are 2 to 4 feather-shaped compound leaves with serrated teeth on the leaf edge and attached to the lower part of the stem. In the early summer, flower like cotton candy is bloomed by extending conical inflorescence from thin and strong stem. The Japanese name is based on the fact that inflorescence seems to have bubbled about countless small flowers. Astilbe of the genus name is a coined word from Greek a (no) + stilbe (glow), a + stilbe (no shine). This is due to the fact that the inflorescence is large, but the individual flowers are small and inconspicuous and the leaves are not shiny. It is vulnerable to direct sunlight and lack of water. There are Astilbe microphylla(Chidakesashi) and Awamori Shawma in the group of {{Astilbe}}. The language of flowers is a "passive approach".
