Pink Spike Cimicifuga

Smells Like Grape Soda!
Raspberry-pink buds reveal pale, fragrant plumes; a striking contrast to the rich, dark foliage. These blooms arrive late to the party, keeping pollinators well-fed at a time when not much else is blooming. Of course, it's the contrast of dark foliage and light blooms that attract most with this. It is a striking, lovely combination, and so popular right now. But another big reason we adore Pink Spike is that the flowers smell like grape soda—no kidding! Cut some flowers for an arrangement indoors to spark conversation with house guests. The towering upright habit makes easy vertical interest in a woodland border, and it's very low-maintenance in these shaded spots. Once the blooms fade, berries appear, attracting birds. Deer, however, are rarely interested.
