Actaea podocarpa
Actaea podocarpa
Common Name: Black Cohosh
An aristocratic plant with tall spires of fragrant, tiny white flowers in early summer over mounds of finely-cut, fanlike green leaves. The flowers actually lack petals; the numerous stamens create the appearance of a white flower spike. Grows well in shade to part sun. Black Cohosh was an important medicinal herb to Native Americans and is being explored today as a possible ingredient in cancer treatment.
