A botanical “Renaissance Man,” Actaea is at home in an informal garden, a refined border or in an arrangement for opening night at the Met. Their ambrosial perfume floats through the air as they illuminate their surroundings. Actaea is happiest in moist, humus-enriched soil and bright shade; otherwise it’s carefree and low maintenance.
Long wand-like creamy-white racemes dangle and dance on slender stems above clumps of dapper deeply-cut toothed green foliage. Try this princely AGM recipient in a naturalized setting, under a tall canopy at the back of the border, next to leafy Ligularia.
Size: 5' 0" – 6' 0" high x 2' 0" – 3' 0" wide.
