Dark Side Of The Moon Astilbe has masses of beautiful plumes of rose flowers with purple overtones at the ends of the stems from early to mid summer, which emerge from distinctive red flower buds, and which are most effective when planted in groupings. The flowers are excellent for cutting. Its attractive serrated ferny compound leaves emerge yellow in spring, turning dark brown in color with hints of coppery-bronze throughout the season. The dark red stems can be quite attractive.

It is an herbaceous perennial with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other garden plants with less refined foliage. This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and is best cleaned up in early spring before it resumes active growth for the season. It is a good choice for attracting butterflies to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats.
