Long racemes of pendulous, fragrant, white flowers appear in late summer and autumn which contrast with the dark, purplish foliage. This is a hybrid of the Asian species Actaea simplex and the American Actaea racemosa from a cross made in the Netherlands by Piet Oudolf. Flowers are attractive to pollinating insects  

Prefers a moist, humus-rich soil in partial shade. If it is planted in full sun, it will need constant moisture. CARE: All parts are poisonous
