Black Cohosh 3 For $11.99 Description

Black Cohosh 

Black cohosh is an ornamental plant best known for its rhizome, which, because of its luscious foliage and white flowers.

Black Cohosh will grow up to eight feet tall and will attract many pollinators to your garden. Black cohosh thrives in medium-moisture soils and full to partially shaded areas similar to its original forest habitat. Before planting, choose rich, acidic, moist soil with high levels of organic matter that is well drained. Black cohosh grows slowly, taking a year or longer to produce above-ground shoots. Your Black Cohosh plant will eventually have many nodes. Once grown, leave the seeds and stalks over winter and cut them back in the spring. 

 

Care and Maintenance

 

Black cohosh is best propagated from rhizome cuttings or seeds. Divide your Black Cohosh rhizomes during spring or in the fall. In contrast, Black Cohosh plants can be started indoors from seed, while rhizomes typically yield the best results. To propagate your Black Cohosh plants, cut the rhizomes into sections approximately 2 - 3 inches long, keeping the fibrous root attached to the rhizome sections. Plant the rhizome in an upright position 4 - 6 inches deep into the soil, and cover them with two inches of soil, ensuring that the rhizome section is vertical and spaced between 18 - 24 inches apart.

Black Cohosh must have moist soil to thrive, yet do not over-water or allow the ground to become waterlogged since this will cause root rot and other diseases. Black Cohosh does not require fertilizer; however, this plant thrives best in rich soil with a lot of organic matter. Amend the soil with compost, composted manure, or shredded leaves as a groundcover mulch to fortify the soil. 

 

Considerations 

 

Pests that enjoy Black Cohosh include cutworms and blister beetles; controlled with organic pesticides. Slugs and snails may also chew on black cohosh foliage and are controlled using beer traps or sawdust, eggshell, or copper tape. Deer, opossum, and rabbits are attracted to Black Cohosh as food, so install or apply repellents. Black Cohosh must be in well-drained soil with good ventilation to prevent root rot or leaf spot. Black cohosh must be harvested in the fall of this plant’s fourth or fifth year after planting. The best time to reap Black Cohosh is in the autumn since the weight of the rhizome and its medicinal properties reach their highest potency during this season.

An herb dryer or food dehydrator will help produce a large harvest when drying your Black Cohosh rhizomes. Once dry, store the rhizomes in a burlap bag or cardboard box in a dry, cool, dark environment. Black Cohosh that is dried is potent for up to one year.
