Mighty Chocolate Cherry Astilbe

Cherry and chocolate not only make great pairings for dessert, but they also make a great pairing in your garden. At nearly 4’ tall, towering cherry-red plumes atop chocolate-red stems will brighten the shadier spots of the landscape in mid-summer. When the flowering period is over, the dark green leaves with chocolate-brown and red overtones will continue bringing color and contrast. This robust grower spreads to about 24-36” and once established, is easy to maintain, deer resistant and drought tolerant.
