Blue Cohosh is an attractive woodland herb that is becoming endangered due to over harvesting. It is a small plant that rarely grows more than 2 1/2 feet ( .60 m) in height. In Tennessee, it blooms in early April and is usually found on wooded slopes.

Tincture or tea made from dried Blue Cohosh root is used in herbal medicine as a uterine tonic, and as an aid in difficult menstruation. Native Americans used Blue Cohosh to induce labor. It should not be used in pregnancy prior to the ninth month. Use only under advice from a qualified medical practitioner.

Blue Cohosh is difficult to grow from seed, though root divisions do well in simulated woodland environment. It needs rich, moist soil and deep shade to thrive.
