Black Cohosh, also known as Actaea racemosa or Cimicifuga racemosa, is a perennial plant that is native to North America. It's known for its tall, white flower spikes and its use in traditional medicine.

This plant typically grows to a height of 4-6 feet with a similar spread. It prefers part shade to full shade and thrives best in moist, well-drained soils. Black Cohosh is a great choice for woodland gardens, shaded borders, or other areas of the landscape that receive less sunlight.

The flowers of Black Cohosh are small, white, and appear on tall spikes above the foliage in the summer. The leaves are compound and have a deep green color.
