Where would gardening be without Astilbes? A natural for soft-looking vertical statements, it’s distinguished by spectacular feathery plumes rising above finely cut foliage of green and bronze. Its hardiness belies its lovely delicate form. Rewarding you with oodles of cut flowers, these easily grown, unflappable perennials prefer to lounge in cool moisture-retentive soil with sun to dappled shade.
Favored for its spectacular upright architecture, ‘Purpurlanze’ sprouts handsome ternately-lobed dark green foliage crowned by straight lance-shaped purple spires, whose soft tightknit appearance begs a caress. Blooming later than most Astilbes, plus tackling more sun and drier conditions, this showy cultivar’s statuesque accents span nearly three seasons. Relish it in woodland fringes with companions like Persicaria ‘Fat Domino’, Hydrangea ‘Rocklon’ and tawny-plumed grasses.
Size: 3' 0" – 4' 0" high x 18" – 2' 0" wide.
