Cimicifuga racemosa
Cimicifuga racemosa
Common Name: Bugbane / syn. Actaea racemosa
Excellent nectar and pollen source for beneficial insects Host plant for Appalachian blue and spring azure butterfly Blooms in shade 4+ weeks Will grow in dry shade under hardwood trees Long-lived, tough perennial that's easy-to-grow

Slender, upright form makes a vertical statement. Wands of tiny white flowers bloom over an extended period of time in mid to late summer attracting loads of butterflies. Despite the height it won’t need staking. Looks best planted in groups though, a single mature plant could be used as a specimen. Deep green foliage has great looking texture all season long. Effective in woodland gardens, cottage gardens and naturalized areas in shade or part shade with moist, well drained soil. 

Height: 4-7 Feet
