(Black Snakeroot) Actaea 'Hillside Black Beauty' PP9,988 is a true collector's item because of the striking dark foliage. Its black- and purplish-colored foliage creates a dramatic and aesthetic appearance for any garden. In the fall, the beautiful foliage gives rise to fragrant foot-long bottlebrush flowers. The blush pink-white flowers look stunning as it contrasts with the dark foliage. 'Hillside Black Beauty' PP9,988 does best in moisture-retentive soil. One of our top-selling shade perennials, 'Hillside Black Beauty' requires either partial- or full-shade. It resists deer and rabbits, yet attracts butterflies for a beautiful and lively environment.

Lovely Dark Foliage Review by Debbie | Zone: 7b
I ordered four of these plants in the spring 2010. Three out of four are growing nicely. They are about 1' tall with lovely dark foliage. Hopefully next year will get some height and flowers. (Posted on 8/24/2010)
