The Gardener's Notepad

One of the darkest of all the Actea, especially in moist light shade. Some sun is required for deep dark leaf color, but too much and it will bleach out. Again, consistently moist, but not wet, soil will help quite a lot. Flowers are lightly fragrant, and are held high over the foliage. Very beautiful!
