at Digging Dog

Astilbe

False Spiraea

Where would gardening be without Astilbes? A showy group of herbaceous perennials, full and fluffy spires of spectacular feathery plumes rise above finely cut foliage of green and bronze. A natural for bold, vertical statements, its hardiness belies its delicate form. All prefer to lounge in cool, moisture-retentive soil, with partial to full shade (inland). One of the best perennials for woodland plantings, they’re also lovely cut flowers.

Astilbe chinensis var. taquetii ‘Purpurlanze’ full sun  partial shade

Favored for its spectacular upright architecture, 'Purpurlanze' sprouts handsome ternately lobed dark green foliage crowned by straight lance-shaped purple spires, whose soft tightset appearance begs a caress. Blooming later than most Astilbes, plus tackling more sun and drier conditions, this showy cultivar’s statuesque accents span nearly 3 seasons. Relish it in woodland fringes with companions like Persicaria ‘Fat Domino’, Sedum ‘Red Cauli’ and tawny-plumed grasses.

Size: 3' 0"–4' 0" high x 18"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

From the website to the customer service to the arrival of these lovely grasses, this has been a very satisfying experience.
