About Color Flash - Astilbe Bulbs

Astilbe arendsii

Seed Type Root
Also known as False Goat's Beard

Our Color Flash astilbe is such a treat! Its bright green foliage changes over time, from burgundy to purple and green, then gold and orange. The tall pink blossoms shoot up from the base of foliage on tall stems. Pollinators love them, but luckily the deer do not. Give this perennial a go and be rewarded with its colorful gifts.
