In Bloom: Black Cohosh

Record #:
Bugbane or black cohosh is a native North Carolina perennial that is easily grown in organically rich and moist soil. The common name of bugbane is a reference to the insect repellent smell the plant gives off, and cohosh comes from an Algonquian word meaning rough. The plant is deer and rabbit resistant, and its flowers provide both nectar and pollen to insects.
