ASTILBE CHI BLACK PEARLS
Grower Notes:

Astilbe chinensis 'Black Pearls' is commonly referred to as Black Pearls Chinese Astilbe or Black Pearls Chinese False Spirea. This selection is part of the Growing Colors® collection and is a showy herbaceous perennial with large, long-lasting purple flower plumes, tinged with blue, and held on sturdy stems surrounded by dark green, fern-like, clump-forming foliage. It will not flop over with the weight of the flowers. It blooms in midsummer for a few weeks and its dense foliage stays attractive and trouble-free all season. Flowers attract bees, butterflies and other beneficial pollinators.

Black Pearls Astilbe is deer and rabbit resistant and thrives in dappled shade in humus rich, evenly moist, well-drained soils. This later blooming variety is more tolerant of sun and drier soils, to a degree, than other varieties.

Companion plants for Astilbe include: Rhododendron, Hosta, Ferns, Heuchera, Ligularia and Japanese and Siberian Iris.
