Mighty Chocolate Cherry Astilbe

Tall Flower Spikes Fill Shady Spots with Unusual Color
Uniquely beautiful and very easy to grow, Mighty Chocolate Cherry is an astilbe with style to spare! To get the most of this award-winning shade lover, be sure to plant it in a shadowed border or darkened perennial bed where it can be enjoyed and admired. Tall, red flower spikes emerge during midsummer to brighten up shade gardens and indoor floral arrangements. Stems and foliage are rich reddish-brown, giving the plant that delicious chocolate cherry appearance for which it is named. Fast growing; cut back the spent flowers for a cleaner look. Prefers average to moist sites, but is tolerant of many soil types. Deer resistant. Astilbe 'Mighty Chocolate Cherry'
