Cimicifuga simplex atropurpurea:
Cimicifuga is a slightly unusual plant, with tall, elegant, upright spires of white flowers late in the season, long after the summer display is over. Plants revel in partial shade, where the flowers are sheltered from weather and so last longer than in exposed positions. If slightly supported by surrounding twiggy stems it will not need staking, and will grow into a more natural shape. The variety ‘Brunette’ has dark purple bronze foliage and long, purple-tinted, off-white flowers.
