Introducing Actaea racemosa, a native perennial known for its numerous spikes of small, fragrant white flowers that bloom from mid-summer to early fall. This elegant plant adds a touch of charm to any shady woodland garden, where it thrives in sheltered locations away from strong winds.

With bold spikes of fragrant flowers and attractive serrated compound leaves, American Bugbane offers a striking display throughout the growing season. The foliage emerges burgundy in spring, gradually transitioning to dark green with prominent deep purple tips. Perfect for cutting, its blooms add beauty and fragrance to floral arrangements. Additionally, the brown fruits that follow the flowers provide visual interest well into late winter, ensuring year-round appeal in the garden.
