Astilbe chinensis 'Purple Candles'
Common name: Chinese astilbe 'Purple Candles'
Beautiful bold purple red flowers turn to a light lavender throughout the later half of the summer.
The flowers are quite showy and will bring a colorful display to the garden.
Makes a great cut and dried flower.
Looks stunning when planted in masses.
Although astilbes are usually easy to grow they do require
good drainage and lots of water especially if they are in more sun.
Exposure: Part shade for best results
