We were so excited, we almost wet our plants when we first saw Astilbe 'Chocolate Shogun'...but, was the color really that good, and would it live for us? The answer to both is a resounding yes. Astilbe 'Chocolate Shogun' is a creation from Japanese plant breeder, Nagasaki Teruhisa, who selected it from a seed batch of Astilbe thunbergii. The 3' tall x 2' wide deciduous clump is clothed with dark purple, foliage, and topped in spring with blush pink flowers...what amazing color combinations await. Slightly moist, rich soils give best performance.
