An Astilbe with a new twist! Like other Astilbe, Color Flash starts the growing season with green leaves. Unlike others, the leaves change to various hues of burgundy, purple, gold and green. Produces 10″ tall pink flower spikes in early summer. Outstanding plant in a partial shade setting.
Growing & Maintenance Tips:
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. For a neat appearance, remove old foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
