Blue Cohosh (Caulophyllum thalictroides) potted plant, organic

$9.50$75.00

Please note:  these are mature potted rhizomes that may go dormant in September.  If so then sold on the basis of a live root in a pot.  Best to transplant to woodlands or shade garden on receipt.

Family:  Barberry (Berberidaceae)

Hardy to Zones 3 to 7

Woodland herbaceous perennial native to Appalachia, growing to 3 feet tall.  Traditional usage (TWM, Native American): the dried root is a classic herb for increasing force of contractions during labor.  A special ally in a woman’s garden, these are shy dwellers of the deep, moist shade.  Rich, acidic forest soil is preferred.  Mulch.  Space plants 1 to 2 feet apart.

Potted Plant, Certified Organically Grown

    Hey there Richo,

    Will these work if our winters get down to 0°? Also will these ot black cohosh spread in their own?

    Thanks as always!

      Hi Amanda, If you click on the picture then you get the monograph and it says this is hardy to zone 3 which is -30 degrees F so you’re fine there. Not sure whether the question about spreading is pointed at the potential for creating a patch or a worry about the plant proliferating out of your control. Careful gardening can assure the former and the latter is an impossibility. Richo
