Astilbe chinensis 'Little Vision in Purple'

Astilbe

Plant Type: Perennial

‘Little Vision in Purple’ differs from ‘Visions’ by its more compact plant habit, more finely dissected leaves, and darker colored flowers. These flowers form a dense block of fuzzy, pyramidal shaped, lavender plumes, presented just above the coarsely textured, dark green foliage in midsummer. Like all Astilbe chinensis types, this one exhibits a bit greater tolerance to drier soils and can tolerate full sun.

A member of Astilbe chinensis(Chinese Astilbe). A later blooming species useful for extending the bloom season into late summer. Foliage is deeply incised, coarsely textured, and often bronze-green in color. Flowers are borne on narrow, branched panicles. Though garden performance is far superior in moist soils, members of this species are moderately drought tolerant.
