Perennial with three-ternate bronze-tinted leaves that bears plume-like panicles of purple-pink flowers on erect slender branches. 6 feet tall and 2 feet wide. More drought-tolerant than most astilbes; thrives in sun or shade.

Cultivation:
For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant. Sow seed in early spring into pots using soil-less seed compost. Mix the seeds with fine sand or talcum powder for an even sowing. Cover with perlite and place under protection at 18 degrees Celsius. Water with a spray. Grow in moist, humusy soil in full sun or part shade.
