A striking giant for the shade garden, 'Purpurkerze' Astilbe grows up to 42 inches tall with spectacular, candelabra-like flowers in rich purple. Foliage is deeply-cut and carries a bronze tint. Like other astilbes, 'Purpurkerze' prefers shade and moist soils, but seems to have more tolerance for drought and sun. (Astilbe chinensis)
