Actaea (Cimicifuga) racemosa - Berkshire Botanical

Actaea racemosa

Snakeroot - Cohosh

Snakeroot or Cohosh is a spectacular addition to the late summer flower garden with tall, rocket-like spires of ivory white, fragrant flowers which are held high above the green foliage. The bloom period is longer than a month and insects love it (great for nature photographers). Adds architectural height to the shaded part of the garden.  Host plant for Spring Azure. Actaea racemosa is best in moist, shady locations.
