Chocolate Shogun Astilbe
Astilbe thunbergii ‘Chocolate Shogun’ PP #26,430
Exquisite and dramatic, the very dark purple-brown, serrated foliage and pale pinkish white plumes command attention in the landscape. A magnificent accent for moist areas, such as around pools and water features. More sun tolerant than other species of astilbe, but does best in a shaded to dappled shade setting. An herbaceous perennial. Attracts butterflies.
Exposure: Shade, part shade, part sun
