Astilbe taquetii 'Purple Candles'

False Spirea

This rugged and beautiful Astilbe is our tallest variety at 40" or so, blooming in mid-to-late summer (July-August) when drought tolerance becomes an added asset. The dense lavender-purple spikes may look best toward the back of the partly shaded border, and rise above bronze-green foliage. Known as an excellent cut flower, its seed heads are also lovely throughout the winter either outside or in the house. By mixing different varieties, Astilbes can effectively brighten the shade garden for three months as long as even moisture is available.
