Astilbe Color Flash®

Astilbe x arendsii ‘Beauty of Ernst

Brilliant electric green foliage emerges in early spring, soon maturing to a palette of burgundy, purple and green. In fall, foliage turns vibrant gold, orange and russet colors. Group in flower beds or spot in mixed containers. Tolerates more sun than other varieties, making it much more versatile in the garden. This is one of the stellar perennials of the highbrow border and semiformal gardens. A superior choice for high profile foundation beds adding foliage interest even when not in bloom. Blends perfectly into the semi-shaded mixed border, providing strong color through summer. Mass or naturalize in woodland gardens. Also at home in country garden settings with hedges and cottage style flowers in informal drifts and masses. Exploit unique coloring with exotic container plant combinations.
