Catchy title eh ? .. well it sort of tweaks interest doesn't it ? .. I am a fan of "bugbane" simple garden name .. I think they were actually reclassified in tough Latin category. I love their dramatic grandeur in size and those amazing white spikes of their flowers. Some of the options are plants with very dark foliage that show up well. Brunette (Actaea simplex 'Brunette') is almost there with purple brown foliage and those bottle brush fragrant white flowers. White Pearl (Actaea matsumurae 'White Pearl') is a little less dramatic but still a beautiful plant .. and apparently it springs forth early than Brunette by this photo .. I'm getting a little nervous about Brunette now .. hope 'she" pops her head out soon !
