Flowers: August-October. Plant in moist part shade. HxS 2mx1m
A very dark, almost black-leaved form with pink budded, white flowers in late summer as other plants are fading. It can grow to 2m in flower, given ideal conditions, and provides a great vertical accent in rich fertile soil. Scent is just an added bonus! Organically grown in peat free compost. Pest and disease resistant and does not require staking. Formerly a member of the Cimicifuga family but now moved into Actaea. Most of the Actaea simplex hybrids are slow growing and take a few years to reach maturity. They are best ordered in spring as they are a devil to ship in late summer and we have to cut them back.
Care & Maintenance.
Divide with care in spring as the plants are not too tolerant of disturbance. Easy to grow and maintenance free. *CAUTION: Poisonous if ingested.
