Actaea simplex ‘Pink Spike’ has fern-like, dark purplish-black-burgundy foliage that is a knockout in the shade garden. Actaea simplex ‘Pink Spike’ has 12 inch long fragrant bottle-brush light pink flowers. It requires a little bit of sunlight to change the emerging green leaves to the deep burgundy colour. Even when not in flower it adds outstanding texture and beauty. Regular moisture prevents the leaves from going crispy. Plant in the right location and you never need to water. A must have perennial.
