Astilboides tabularis is the only species of the botanical genus and is native to the mountain slopes, woodlands and banks of rivers and lakes in north-east China and North Korea.
Formerly knows as Rodgersia tabularis or Saxifraga tabularis, it is a rare, superb specimen for a partial shade garden with leaves that are nearly 90 cm in diameter.
Diaphanous flowering in white plumes like an Astilbe.
In the garden we like to use it as a focus plant near a pond or planted together with other stars of the partial shade such as Hosta, Astrantia, Rodgersia, Brunnera, Astilbe, etc.
Grow in good, humus-rich, moist to damp garden soil.
Shady exposure or at the bottom of a north-facing wall, near or under trees, in a shady border or in a patio pot.
It can cope with some morning sun, but hates drying winds.
Easy to grow, but slow to develop.
