An dramatic addition to the landscape, Dark Side of the Moon is a unique dark leafed Astilbe with purple flowers. The richly colored burgundy leaves provide an attractive mound of fern like foliages, that darken as they age. Dark stems rise up and raspberry purple panicles flowers rise up to create a spectacular display.

Dark Side of the Moon blooms later than most astilbe and is useful for extending the bloom season into late summer. The foliage adds texture to the garden with deep fern like incisions and a rough texture. Foliage color is bronze to green and the flower panicles are a hot purple that pops in low light. Moderately drought tolerant, but will perform better in moist soils with water support.

Received my order in just 2 days. They were packed extremely well and the plants arrived in excellent condition. I planted them, and they seem to be doing very well. I definitely would order from New Blooms Nursery again.

Great purchase
