Named for its bluish stem, blue cohosh is another eastern woodland native that enjoys rich moist soils. Wildcrafted for its root, it is increasingly popular as a remedy for menstrual disorders. Also, studies have shown the plant extract inhibits the implantation of a fertilized egg. Further research is needed to determine this plant's potential as a contraceptive.
Cultivation: Cultivation is being attempted on a small-scale, experimental basis.
