Astilbe 'Chocolate Shogun' 1 Gallon

Availability: Out of stock

Astilbes are a mainstay of shade gardens, providing fresh attractive greenery from spring into the fall, with delicate summertime stalks of flowers. 'Chocolate Shogun' Astilbe, or False Spirea, is an unusual variety to say the least, with dark chocolate brown to purple serrated leaves and a better tolerance for sun than most other varieties. Pink buds open to white on tall stalks, contrasting dramatically against the dark foliage, and making wonderful cut flowers. Excellent in mass plantings or in container planters, 'Chocolate Shogun' will be a standout in any shade garden.
