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.
