Actaea r. 'James Compton'

Bugbane

A wonderfully airy, architectural backdrop for the garden, the dark purplish-black foliage will compliment everything around it. Especially attractive when combined with variegated or yellow foliage. In late summer, sweetly fragrant, white flowers tinged pink sway in the wind above the masses of foliage. Though the young leaves tend to be green, by the second season they have deepened to a dark purple-black. Measuring only 3' tall, this selection is similar to, but shorter than 'Hillside Black Beauty'. Syn: Cimicifuga
