Product Description

Black Cohosh - Actaea racemosa

The Black Cohosh, Actaea racemosa, is a favorite perennial plant used in landscaping. The tight flower clusters of its bloom appear in late Spring and early Summer. It also produces a sweet smell. The Black Cohosh needs moist soil to survive.

USDA Hardiness Zones 3-8

Black Cohosh is a bush like a plant. The flame-like blossom towers genuinely emerge before a darker foundation and give late summer sprouts when other shade plants have blurred. Expansive and hedge like, a full-grown plant makes a fantastic example once settled. On the other hand use it to naturalize vast shade ranges, where its size permits it to fill in the shade garden after spring ephemerals have gone lethargic.

The blossoms keep going for three weeks and may sprout as right on time as June or as late as September, contingent upon their geographic area. The dark green foliage of Black Cohosh holds its great surface and shading all through the developing season. Simple to keep up, it is local to sodden deciduous forests in the eastern portion of the U.S. what's more, lean towards the rich soils normal of these forests, yet is reasonably dry season tolerant.

    Black cohosh rhizomes

    I ordered 3 black cohosh rhizomes and they shipped clean, ready to pant and quickly enough to get them in the ground before the frost. The only reason for not giving 5 stars is that I’ll have to wait until spring to see how they grow!

    Black Cohosh roots

    Aug 18, 2023 Reviewer: Julia

    I planted 10 black cohosh roots as recommended and 4 out of the ten ordered have already poked through the soil and mulch layer. They are approx. 6" high at this time. I am looking forward to next year and a possible bloom? I was so pleased with the quality of the roots that I ordered another set of 10 that arrived today! Thank you.
