Autumn Bride Hairy Alumroot

4 Photos


Summary

Versatility is the hallmark of this beautiful alumroot. Rounded, light green leaves with a velvety texture make a bold statement in the garden. Creamy, white flower spikes up to 2’ tall emerge from late summer to frost and are perfect for cutting. Mounded, semi-evergreen plants can reach 15″ tall and function well as a groundcover. Though happiest in shade and evenly moist soils, Autumn Bride hairy alumroot will tolerate some sun and is quite drought tolerant. It also maintains excellent foliage quality throughout the growing season. For late season interest, integrate it with Chelone glabra, Ageratina altissima ‘Chocolate’, Eurybia divaricata, Chrysogonum virginianum, and Carex flaccosperma.
