Actaea simplex 'Brunette'
Cultivar with dark purplish stems and leaves, and pink flowers. After trying to start this and its cousins from seed many times, without success, I broke down and bought a plant. So far, it's well worth it. Its new foliage is delightful - a dark purple-tinged green, finely cut, offsetting even darker stems.
