This lovely native woodland perennial forms a sizable multi-stemmed clump of soft blue-green foliage and is similar to Cimicifuga in habit. It is a dependable, low maintenance, long-lived perennial once established. In late spring to early summer, small clusters of white flowers are produced just above the foliage. These flowers develop into panicles of showy white fruits (“doll’s eyes”) which are borne on red pedicels in autumn for 4-6 weeks.
