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.

An incredibly useful Geranium, a great candidate for underplanting in shaded and wooded spots. Wonderful for natural or semi wild planting schemes.
