Black Cohosh Plant

Black Cohosh, scientifically known as Actaea racemosa. It is a member of the Ranunculaceae family and is commonly referred to by various names, including black snakeroot, bugbane, and rattleroot. This herbaceous plant is renowned for its historical and contemporary medicinal uses, particularly among Native American and early European settlers.

The black cohosh typically grows in woodland areas, often found in the eastern regions of North America, including the United States and Canada. It is characterized by tall, graceful spikes of white, bottlebrush-like flowers that bloom in late spring to early summer, reaching heights of up to six feet. The leaves are pinnately compound and deeply lobed, providing an attractive appearance even when not in bloom.

Black Cohosh Plant Has A Deep History

The black cohosh has been valuable for centuries. Indigenous peoples, such as the Cherokee and Iroquois, have historically used it. European settlers adopted these practices and introduced them to the medical community.

Plant it in partial to full shade, mimicking its natural woodland habitat. Choose rich, well-draining soil that is slightly acidic and maintains consistent soil moisture without waterlogging. These conditions will promote the best growth for this shade-loving perennial plant.

In recent years, black cohosh has gained popularity as an alternative to hormone replacement therapy for menopausal symptoms due to concerns about hormone therapy's potential risks.

Wonderful plants that shipped too early

This nursery has amazing pricing and selection on native plants! I'd definitely give 5 stars on plant quality, but their customer service is lacking. Running a nursery myself, I know this time of year can be overwhelming, but my order arrived two months earlier than I had requested. When a mistake like this is made, an apology goes a long way, but instead, responses are terse, if at all, on how to keep these plants dormant until close to the time we open, and how to avoid the same issue in future.
