Actaea simplex 'Hillside Black Beauty'


The striking dark purple-black foliage is a nice backdrop to the fragrant white bottlebrush type flowers in late summer. Grows 4 – 7' and is native to the eastern United States. This dark leafed perennial prefers to be in rich soil with adequate moisture. Try with a bright green Hosta such as 'Guacamole' or 'Paul's Glory'. Photo courtesy of Walters Gardens, Inc.
