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.
Actaea japonica ‘Cheju-Do’ (P-1871)
A superior South Korean selection introduced by Darrell Probst, this courtly compact Actaea furnishes lush verdant layers of jagged-edged, shiny green leaves clasping blackish purple stalks. The dark pearl-shaped buds plus tiny snow-white blossoms adorn tall close-set glittering candles that gracefully herald the season’s end.
Size: 3' 0" – 4' 0" high x 18" – 2' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
