Astilbe chinensis 'Purple Candles' ('Purpurkerze') (25) Bare Root Plants
Common Name: Astilbe-Chinese
'Purple Candles' quickly forms a compact graceful, fern-like mound of dainty foliage topped by bunches of fragrant, violet-red flowers, that softens to lighter shades of purple as they mature. Flowers are densely packed into erect to arching, triangular, plume-like flower panicles rising above the foliage on slender, upright stems. Bold, dark green foliage has a coarse texture and blooms mid-summer.
