White airy plumes blooming in July to August, over bold, dark green foliage on dark maroon stems, reaching 3-5' tall and wide, with a bushy habit. Flowers followed by black drupe fruits in September.
Part to full shade in organically rich moist, well-drained. Can take dry soil once established as it develops a tap root when mature.
