Availability: Out of stock
White Pearl' is an erect, clump-forming bugbane cultivar which is noted for its large, arching, bottlebrush-like flower spikes of pure white flowers and its late season bloom. Features ternately compound, medium green leaves on branched, dark stems typically growing to 2. 5-3' tall. Fern-like foliage usually remains attractive throughout the growing season. Flower stems arch above the foliage clump to a height of 3-4' from late summer into autumn and feature wand-like, terminal racemes (to 24" long) of fragrant, apetalous, fluffy white flowers. Blooms somewhat later than many other species of Actaea. The common name of bugbane is in reference to the odoriferous insect repellent properties attributed to most plants in the genus. Synonymous with and formerly known as Cimicifuga simplex 'White Pearl'. All plants in the genus Cimicifuga have recently been transferred to the genus Actaea. Supplied in approx 3 litre containers.
