An excellent option for your shaded garden or landscape. Cimicifuga, or commonly called Black Snakeroot, is a standout with its attractive lace-like foliage and bottlebrush flowers. Butterflies love the blooms, but the rabbits and deer will stay away. Plant Cimicifuga in full to part shade locations, with moist soil. With its darker foliage, Black Snakeroot looks great next to plants with light green and chartreuse foliage, like hostas.
