Perennial Hillside Black Beauty Black Snakeroot - CIMICIFUGA r. 'Hillside Black Beauty'. 4-7' tall, 3-4' spread, part-full shade, late summer-mid fall bloom.

In late summer, the tall stems are topped with foot-long, fragrant, white flowers blushed with pale pink. Forms a striking, upright clump that creates a wonderfully lacy, airy backdrop in the garden. Especially attractive when combined with variegated or yellow foliage. Attracts butterflies & is bee friendly. Deer & rabbit resistant. Zones 4-8. Potted in 3" pot.
