We've noticed that Chinese Astilbes tolerate dry spells better than many other forms of Astilbe, and find this a big plus within our unpredictable summer rainfall. 'Purple Candle's blooms in late June through July and is a taller selection, growing 30-40" tall. The foliage looks well all s ason if it does not get too dry, and the seed heads age gracefully, retaining a plum pink tint. Spreads quickly into sizable 2-3' clumps if grown in fertile moist soil.
