Commands Attention!
Something new! This adaptable species is more sun and drought tolerant than typical Astilbe. Handsome, glossy chocolate-bronze foliage is a pleasing backdrop to the pink-blushed flower panicles in early summer. *PLEASE NOTE: Yes, it can tolerate more sun; but it still requires adequate moisture. Astilbe lend a refined grace to perennial borders and are considered essential to the shade garden. Perennial Spirea produce stunning plume-like flowers that move with the slightest breeze. Plants display lush deeply-cut green to bronze foliage that remains attractive for the entire growing season. Deer resistant.
