 Its large size allows it to fill in shade areas later in the summer when showy spring

ephemerals have gone dormant.  The white candelabra-shaped flowers are fragrant, the attractive leaves are deep green, and the whole plant is generally deer/rabbit resistant.  Easy to maintain, Black Cohosh enjoys richer soils typical of woodlands but can tolerate periods of dryness. Also referred to as Bugbane or Black Snakeroot and Actaea racemosa; the name Bugbane comes from the insect repellent smell the plant gives off.
