Astilbe arendsii 'Color Flash'
‘Color Flash’ has green foliage that turns to purples, reds, and dark greens, then gives way to warm autumn colors in late summer. The flowers are nice, but it is the exotic-colored foliage that really makes this one stand out. Pink flowers appear between mid July and August. PP#17343. Illegal propagation prohibited.
Astilbes are long-lived perennials for massing, border, or specimen. They have fern-like ornamental foliage and showy blooms. Will tolerate sun with ample moisture, but they are happiest in some shade. Bloom time is June through August. (Flowering times are broken down below after “bloom” as early, middle, and late.)
