Astilbe - Color Flash
Color Changing Leaves on Shady Plant
Astilbe Color Flash (False Spirea), Astilbe x arendsii 'Color Flash', has a stunning new contrast of foliage colors!
The deeply cut ferny leaves start off bright lime green, and then mature to a rich burgundy purple to a bronze color. All foliage colors are present on each plant since the leaves come out in different stages!
‘Color Flash’ displays striking pink plumes that grow upright to about 10 inches above the plant.
This astilbe would make a great new addition to your part shade garden. For a brilliant and colorful effect plant them in masses; use also in borders or containers.
It is best to apply a thick layer of mulch around the root zone over the growing season to conserve soil moisture; since it prefers moisture, water regularly for abundant flowers and nice foliage.
The multi-colored foliage is deer and rabbit resistant; attracts butterflies.
‘Color Flash’ is a “must have” because of its long blooming period, great color, attractive foliage, and low, low maintenance!
