Actaea ramosa 'James Compton'
‘James Compton’ is a compact, bronze-leaved cultivar that has nicely fragrant white and pink-tinged flowers. White flowers appear between August and September.
Actaeas are large showy woodland perennials that prefer a moist, rich, acidic soil. Wait three to four years for full size, but these are one of the queens of the shady garden.
