Honey-scented pale pink spires tower above the bronze-purple foliage in late summer. Newly emerging frilly bright green foliage mingles at the basal mound for stunning contrast. Dramatic!

The finely cut fern-like foliage of Cimicifuga Pink Spike makes a perfect backdrop for the late summer spires of fragrant flowers. Prefers a consistently moist site for best habit. Adds architectural oomph and late summer bloom to a shady area. Good in groups or as a specimen. Best color in light shade.

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.
