Astilbe: Purple Candles


The Chinese Astilbe, blooming later than other Astilbe types, is also more tolerant of sun and drier conditions. Purple Candles will light up any shady area with its large purple-red plumes in July and August while the large, hairy leaves make a bold statement on their own. The sturdy flowers are great for cutting and drying. While this Astilbe is generally tougher than others it still appreciates being kept evenly moist.
