Embrace the dark side of your garden with the stunning Black Cohosh, also known as Bugbane. This perennial medicinal herb presents an impressive silhouette with tall, arching stems topped by feathery white flowers. This beauty, however, isn't just skin deep. Known for its medicinal properties, Black Cohosh has been used in traditional medicine to alleviate a range of ailments. Its striking foliage and towering blooms create a dramatic focal point in shaded garden spots or woodland gardens. What's more, it's also deer-resistant, making it a perfect choice for a peaceful, untouched corner of your green oasis.

Start seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost date, or sow directly outdoors in the fall. Black Cohosh seeds require cold stratification for 4-6 weeks at 40°F (4°C) to improve germination. Plant seeds 1/8 inch deep and keep the soil consistently moist until germination occurs, which typically takes 30-60 days. Transplant seedlings outdoors after the last frost, spacing them 18-24 inches apart. Black Cohosh prefers partial to full shade and well-draining, fertile, humus-rich soil.
