Common Name: Snakeroot-Black
‘Hillside Black Beauty’ is truly a collector’s item. It forms an upright clump of striking, dark purplish-black foliage contrasted by long, white bottle brush blooms late in the season.
Though the young foliage tends to be green, it quickly deepens to an almost iridescent purple-black. In late summer, the 4′-7′ tall stems are topped with foot-long, fragrant, white flowers blushed with pale pink.
Cimicifuga is a wonderfully lacy, airy backdrop plant in the shade garden. Attracts butterflies. Deer and Rabbit Resistant.
