Black Cohosh, also called Black snakeroot,is a flowering plant in the family Ranunculaceae. It is native to eastern North America growing in woodland habitats. The root of Black Cohosh is used medicinally by many. Extracts from these plant materials are thought to possess analgesic, sedative, and anti-inflammatory properties.

Black Cohosh grows best in rich, damp soil in shady areas such as woodlands, boggy areas, natural drains and stream banks. Germinating Black Cohosh from seed may have low germination rates. Experience with different types of germinating methods is suggested before attempting to germinate Black Cohosh.

Growing your garden landscape, flowering plants from seed not only saves a ton of money, it is the most rewarding as well! Gardeners should understand that most plants have built in dormancy mechanisms that will prevent the seed from germinating until the time is right ( nature's time). This amazing feature prevents a population of plants from germinating all at once, before killing frosts, or in times of drought. To germinate native plants, a gardener needs to break this dormancy period before the seeds will sprout.

Nature sometimes increases the odds of a seed germinating at just the right time by requiring multiple conditions be met. Black Cohosh seeds need a 60-90 day period of cold stratification. Place the seeds in a plastic bag with damp peat moss in the refrigerator for 60 days), followed by a 60-90 day period in 75-80 degree temperatures. Finally, the seeds will once again need three months of cold temperatures in the refrigerator to allow the rest of the seed to germinate.

The roots were used by Native Americans as an herb. Various herbal remedies were used as holistic medicine, although the plant can be toxic, with proper drying and use the medicinal plant can have quite a few medicinal qualities.
