Looking After Your Cimicifuga Simplex Brunette
Generally pest and disease free, although may be affected by leaf spot, an easy to grow perennial in many if not all locations, preferring a shaded or semi-shaded position and planted in a humus rich, moist soil. As your Cimicifuga or Actaea grows support will be needed to prevent blowing over. Mulch well around the base to help retain moisture during the Summer and prevent drying out in the early Spring.
