Pink Spike Bugbane is an attractive cultivar easily recognized for its distinctive, chocolate / purple coloured foliage. The flowers are light pink and white. They appear on tall, black bouncy spikes in late summer. The flowers are also sweetly fragrant and attract pollinator species, like birds and butterflies.

Actaea simplex 'Pink Spike' plant works well in cool, moist, shady areas that are protected from strong winds. Consider planting in shade gardens, around woodlots, or in an empty corner where full sun plants can’t grow. The flashy appearance of the Pink Spike Snakeroot makes it stand out as a specimen in your garden, or alone in a planter.
