Mighty Chocolate Cherry Astilbe

Uniquely beautiful and very easy to grow, Mighty Chocolate Cherry is an astilbe with style to spare! To get the most of this award-winning shade lover, be sure to plant it in a shadowed border or darkened perennial bed where it can be enjoyed and admired. Tall, red flower spikes emerge during midsummer to brighten up shade gardens and indoor floral arrangements. Stems and foliage are rich reddish-brown, giving the plant that delicious chocolate cherry appearance for which it is named. Fast growing; cut back the spent flowers for a cleaner look. Prefers average to moist sites, but is tolerant of many soil types. Deer resistant. Astilbe 'Mighty Chocolate Cherry'

The type of product you order or the weather in our area or yours may affect the anticipated shipping schedule.

Based on the contents of your order we always strive to ship your order complete, and as early as possible. Large orders may be shipped in more than one package.

Bare-root perennials, trees and shrubs are kept in the nursery row until fully dormant. This promotes optimum transit conditions and success in your garden. In the Fall, these plants tend to arrive at the later end of the shipping window.
In all cases, we choose the fastest, most efficient way to send your order.

For trees and other oversize items, we do not ship to PO boxes and it will be delivered via FedEx Home delivery.
