Actaea racemosa


Here's a graceful native perennial that bears long, white bottlebrush-like wands of flower plumes on upright stems. The large, ferny green leaves stand about 30" high, with the flowers 2–3' above on long branching stems. Blooming in July, it brightens a woodland garden, or is equally happy in the back of a sunny border where the hot afternoon sun can be avoided. In moist, humusy soil it is long-lived, drought-tolerant, and vigorous, making a good cut flower with a peculiar but pleasant fragrance thought to repel insects.
