Actaea japonica 'Cheju-Do'
A very unusual bugbane from Japan, with a compact, 12-14" mound of unique waxy leaves, not divided like those of other Actaea, but reminiscent of Heuchera leaves; a toothed heart shape. Flowers prolifically, with up to 15 highly branched, 4-5' tall stems bearing numerous racemes of white flowers in late summer. Grow in part to full shade and moist, rich soil. Zone 4-7.
