Product Details
Originally named Cimicifuga until recently. The foliage is half of the attraction on this cultivar being a relatively deep purple-brown. The whole plant - stems included - are a rich purple-brown which is strongest in high light conditions. The leaves are held on rigid stems which require no staking to a height of around 90 cms high. Flowers are borne on the stem tips and are in the form of a spike which may carry dozens of smallish but very strongly scented creamy flowers. Numerous spikes are borne from the original stem giving the plant an extended flowering period.
