Description Fine Print
Lacy black foliage is held on lovely dark stems from which rise beautiful undulated spikes of purple-tinted, white flowers held two feet above the leaves. The flowers carry an exotic perfume of grape and jasmine in August and September. Give it lots of water with full sun to bring out the darkest foliage. Quite flexible for light conditions, bugbane is one of the few intensely fragrant perennials for the shade garden.
