Plant Type: Perennials
On the heels of the successful introduction of Color Flash Astilbe comes the new Color Flash Lime. Its leaves emerge intense yellow and softening to light green as the season progresses. This plant is ideal for containers, shaded perennial gardens and borders where its vibrant colored leaves provide a flash of color all season long. Great for mass plantings. It will reach 10 inches high and 16 inches wide, with pink flower spikes towering 10 to 15 inches above the foliage.
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.
