Chocoholic Bugbane - Cimicifuga 'Chocoholic'

Chocoholic Bugbane is a dwarf cultivar only growing two to three feet tall with dark purple foliage. Fragrant bottlebrush flowers appear from mid summer to fall. They are a rich mauve-pink color when they open and lighten to white as they age. Bugbane is tolerant of a full range of light conditions, but is great to add fragrance to the shadier garden. Especially attractive when combined with variegated or golden foliage.

Performs best in shade to partial shaded area's of the garden; some direct sunlight is required to draw out the purple coloration in the foliage. Prefers a moist, organically enriched soil with constant water supply throughout spring, summer and fall. Cimicifuga takes a few years to get established and reach maturity. Mature clumps should not be disturbed.
