Actaea


Actaea (Actaea matsumurae (Bugbane))

The first flower on this plant. I'm hoping that it will grow taller, as it can't be seen from the front of the wide border.

That looks nice not seen the white one before. My pink ones grow to about 4ft

Very pretty !

Brian, this is only about 3'. I hoped it would be taller. Maybe next year?

Thanks, Bell...the only trouble is having to climb into the bed to see it!

Maybe it's going to be a removal job then Spritz?

Hmmm...maybe!

this is stunning, almost lily of the valley'ish in appearance.
I really must put it on my wish list.

It's a lovely plant - and you'd like it in your shady area. :-)

how tall does it grow? I really will have to look out for it.

Mine's 3' in its first year, up to the top of the flowers. I thought it might grow a little taller, but I suspect it won't.

thats a good size then and I have the perfect spot for it too.
:o)

Oh good. I don't expect you'll have problems tracking it down. Haha - an advert popped up - it's available via GOY!!!

Barbara, what do you think about the scent ? I think it's a 'Marmite' thing - love it or hate it. Personally, I like it !! :-)

HA! I can't reach it, Muddy - it's at the back of my wide border...so no comment, I'm afraid, unless I climb in.

In that case I'd recommend waiting for a dry day... lol.

I dived in today - and I don't mind the scent at all! I found that the other plant is also in flower - I can't tell one from 't'other, though. It was sold to me as a Cimifuga.
