Also called Bride's Feather, quite robust, bushy looking woodland perennial, usually reaching 4' tall and wide, but in ideal conditions 6' tall and wide.
Compound green leaves, cream-white plumes in April/May, remind of Astilbe or Spirea (it's relatives with Spirea).
This perennial is native to temperate northern hemisphere, and it prefers cooler areas, so the best is to grow it in zones 4 to 7.
Half shade, dappled shade, full shade and organic rich and medium to moist soil are the best. The more the south you go, the more shade it needs (and other growing conditions requirements too, in norther ares can be grown in sun).
Plants can be male or female, males have more showy flowers.
Deer and rabbit resistant plant. Attracts butterflies, native bees, honey bees and moths. Host plants for larvae of Dusky Azure Butterfly.
The best in woodland gardens, shaded areas, as the background for shorter plants, along streams, for naturalization.
