Cimicifuga General Information:

Cimicifuga are grown for their dramatic stature and impressive blooms. Finely cut fern-like foliage makes a perfect backdrop for late summer spires of fragrant flowers. Prefers a consistently moist site for best habit. Deer resistant. Extremely hardy. Plants may take a year to really get going (similar to Baptisia).

Cimicifuga Plant Care:

Performs best in fertile, moist, high-organic, acidic soil that drains well. Avoid hot afternoon sun. Seedheads provide winter interest, so best to cut down in spring. Division is rarely needed as once established, plants can remain undisturbed indefinitely.
