Astilbe taquetii 'Superba'
Rosy-purple vertical spires rise 3-4' in July to August. Leaves are delightfully crinkled. Reliable performer. Spikes remain conspicuous in the winter garden. Space 18-24" apart. Excellent cut flower.
Light to part shade in rich, moist organic soil in summer and dry conditions in winter. Tolerant of drier conditions than most Astilbes.
