Astilbe c. 'Little Visions in Purple' 1Gal
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. Shorter varieties such as 'Pumila' make excellent groundcovers.
