All the world loves Astilbes, but this variety is especially sweet. Chocolate Shogun gets its name from its unbelievably dark foliage that is both unique and breathtaking. The delectable maroon brown of its jagged leaves serves as a picture perfect backdrop to the bright pink flower spears which emerge in summer. This perennial loves the shade and is the perfect solution to spicing up shadowy and damp areas of the garden. This petite but mighty cultivar resists deer and is quite easy to grow. Due to its size and durability this astilbe thrives just about anywhere so give it space in your beds, borders, containers and especially your cut garden since their flowers are simply irresistible! Zones 4-8.
