The darkest Cimicifuga to date, 'Hillside Black Beauty'. It forms an upright clump of striking, dark purplish-black foliage contrasted by long, white bottlebrush blooms late in the season. Though the young foliage tends to be green, it quickly deepens to an almost iridescent purple-black. In late summer, the 4'-7' tall stems are topped with foot-long, fragrant, white flowers blushed with pale pink. Cimicifuga is a wonderfully lacy, airy backdrop in the garden.


Native to the edges of woodlands in eastern North America, Cimicifuga performs best in partial shade and moist, organically enriched soil. Water supply should remain constant throughout the spring, summer and autumn. Cimicifuga takes a few years to get established and reach maturity. Mature clumps should not be disturbed.
