The perfect plant for adding summer drama to the shade garden, cimicifuga bears white, candle-like flowers on plants that can reach 7 feet tall. Even when not in bloom, its fine-textured foliage adds interest, especially when paired with hostas. This plant is native to areas of North America.
Note: You may sometimes see Cimicifuga listed as the botanical name because botanists have reclassified it as Actaea. It grows best in moist, well-drained soil that's rich in organic matter.
