Actaea (Cimicifuga) 'White Pearl' has dissected green foliage and exceptionally long spires of fragrant white flowers in late summer and fall like arching and rippling pipe-cleaners. A great plant for height and late season fragrance from the shade border to full sun. You gotta love a perennial that can grow in any light conditions! Small birds love to eat the seeds in fall and winter.
