Actaea

A stellar performer of the plant world - fantastic foliage, an architectual frame and late flowers on lofty strong stems. Actaea thrive in shade and partial shade, although they dislike boggy conditions. They look wonderful at the back of borders and associate beautifully with ferns, Tiarellas and Japanese anemones. They won't thrive in very alkaline and well drained soils. They are in the buttercup family and need similar conditions to most other members of this diverse family.

All parts of the plants are poisonous and gloves need to be worn when handling.

{Description}
Sweet Cicely, fully deciduous. In Spring it produces beautiful soft, hairy, pale green leaves, and then later small heads of cow parsley type flowers. Brushing past it releases the sweet aniseed scent, and it's often used in the preparation of stewed fruit to reduce the amount of sugar needed. A must for the herb or wild garden.
{Cultivation}
Grows well in dry shade, though best with semi-shade.
