Actaea simplex ‘Black Negligee’
Actaea simplex ‘Black Negligee’ is a late-season blooming perennial that produces fragrant pink-tinged white flowers and has very dark, almost black leaves. Formerly a member of the Cimicifuga family but now moved into Actaea. Most of the Actaea simplex hybrids are slow-growing and take a few years to reach maturity. Best with bright shade or direct sun, but the soil must stay evenly moist.
P9 (9cm Pot)- P9 pots are square 9cm pots that we grew most of our salvias in. 9cm pots tend to be first year plants.
1 Litre (11cm Pot)- 1 Litre pots are Square 11cm Pots which we tend to grow our herbaceous and shrub plants in. 1 Litre pots are usually first year plants
2 Litre (16cm Pot)- 2 Litre pots are circular 16cm pots. We commonly use the 2 litres to pot on our 1st year crop to ensure it becomes a stronger more established plant. 2 Litre pots tend to be 2-3 years old
We aim to send our plants out within a week of purchase however they may sometimes be delays depending on stock level. Please see the Product description to see delivery time We send our plants out in double wall cardboard box which gives your plants the best protection during delivery. Each individual plant will be placed in a bio-degradable plastic bag and wrapped tightly around the steam of the plant which will limit the amount of soil falling out should there be movement during delivery. Two canes are put in the pot, one to secure the stem and one to limit vertical movement. Please note we may prune the plant back to fit in the box. All plants that leave our nursery in excellent condition, however sometimes damage can occur during delivery so should there be a problem, please contact us immediately and we will sort it out.
