Actaea cordifolia

CREAM SNAKE ROOT

The flower spikes made up of many tiny creamy-white florets have a spicy fragrance and the beautiful large, lobed leaves form a nice clump of deep green foliage below providing excellent texture and colour when blooming during late summer and early autumn. The foliage grows to 60cm and spreads to 50cm, when the stems and flowers emerge they can rise up to 1.2m high.
Actaea cordifolia CREAM SNAKE ROOT is low maintenance, Hardy, long lived perennial that works well in ½ shaded or dappled shade gardens and is perfect for damp or poorly drained soil.

Easy to grow

Actaea cordifolia CREAM SNAKE ROOT will tolerate more sun, if regularly watered.It is an ideal plant for the mid to back of border with an exotic appearance and can fill a gap in the garden nicely with its fancy foliage and summer flower spires, which are tall and imposing. Stunning when grown in groups, although single plants have good specimen value once established.
