Astilbe Chocolate Shogun

$15.95

An award-winner, this native of Japan is easily distinguished by its dark foliage.  The rich chocolate-maroon leaves provide a high contrast background for the blushed pink, white flower spikes.  Astilbe is a rugged and beautiful genus of shade lovers that throw colorful spikes above divided foliage in summer, a time when color in the shade garden is hard to come by.  Use them in groups in the woodland border, or mass them to create a ground cover.  In evenly moist or wet soil, Astilbes are tough, pest-free, and handsome.  The only thing they cannot endure is drought.  The blooms are useful for cutting if they are picked when half open.  Zone 4
