This is very bright (though indirect) light. In true shade -- the kind you get on a sunny day -- it looks almost black.

Well, I think everyone's gotten a good look -- I'll move this one down.

julia, that is gorgeous - I really like cimcifugas, especially the dark ones. How old is yours, and can you post a photo if/when it flowers?

Outstanding color combination!

Nice looking mulch you have there, too... seriously. lol. I just noticed yesterday that my cimcifugas are already setting their flower buds this year. I don't keep records, but it seems kind of early, doesn't it?

Nice picture, and I like the contrast with the green (I'm guessing) astilbe leaves. Is that netting I see holding down your mulch? I do that in areas where squirrels and other critters always seem to dig, or on slopes where rain washes the mulch away.

dee can, I agree with you. My cimicifugas have budded up at least a month and a half (or more) early, as have many other of my usual later flowering plants. Another strange but interesting gardening year.

kms, it's interesting to know I'm not alone in the early budding of my cimicifugas. Another reason I love them (besides how nice they look) are they attract bees, and they smell great.
