Description


Tall and elegant, Actaea are perfect for a moist, shady spot. Dramatic clumps of showy, ferny foliage are accentuated by tall, architectural, highly scented bottlebrush-like flowers - a feast for every passing butterfly and bee. Attractive berries follow soon afterwards, to the delight of your local birds. Your collection comprises; Actaea pachypoda Misty Blue, Actaea simplex Brunette and Actaea Pink Spike. These plants were once known as Cimicifuga until DNA evidence in 2000 discovered they were part of the Actaea family. Given the common name Baneberry because the shiny berries are loved by birds; though keep away from children. Actaea are beautiful, structural perennials with interesting, attractive foliage, (sometimes tinted green when young). Strong dark stems ensure there is no need for staking and this helps make excellent cut flowers for a vase, so you can enjoy the sweet scent indoorsl. Actaea prefer to be grown in moist, though not boggy, soil in dappled, part, or full shade. Fully hardy perennials, your Actaea will die back over winter to sprout again in spring with no cold protection required.
