Bugbanes are late-season blooming perennials, generally planted in rich moist woodland situations. This native cultivar features bronze-purple foliage and arching wands or spikes of fragrant, mauve-pink, bottlebrush flowers, blooming late summer through early fall. The flowers lighten to white as they mature. A wonderful addition to the shade garden. In cool summer areas this will grow well in sunny sites, otherwise choose a part-shade location, protected from hot afternoon sun. Plants will take about three years to develop into a mature clump.
