Astilbe 'Visions in Red'

This Astilbe chinensis hybrid has thick, fragrant, long lasting magenta-purple plumes on red stems over thick and compact, coarse, deep green foliage that emerges with a bronze-red tint in the spring. It blooms in midsummer and is somewhat drought tolerant compared to other astilbes. Its name refers to the red stems and red tinted spring foliage. When you compare this to Astilbe 'Visions' the red differences are rather obvious, however the name has led some to think this has red flowers, which it doesn't. (PP#11965)
