A chocolate delight!. New astilbe foliage cut purple black (void) that overcomes summer flowers in pink white plume. Usable in floral art when the flower is half open. Sol fees drained.
The tricolor foliage emerges green, matures burgundy purple and turns into gold, orange and reddish dazzling in the fall.
Variety from a seedling of A. simplicifolia ‘Sprite’. Beautiful glossy dark green lobed foliage and prolonged flowering. Bright raspberry pink flowers borne on red stems. Vigorous plants that still require time before they establish themselves well.
