Cimicifuga simplex ‘Brunette’


Black Bugbane

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.153.090


(=Actaea simplex) Bugbanes are late-season blooming perennials, generally planted in rich moist woodland situations. 'Brunette' is an exceptionally beautiful selection, valued for its large Astilbe-like leaves of purple black. Arching wands or bottlebrush spikes of fragrant pale-pink flowers rise above the clump in early fall. Great for cutting. In cool summer areas this will grow well in sunny sites, otherwise choose a part-shade location, protected from hot afternoon sun. Plants will take about three years to develop into a mature clump. A striking specimen!
