Black Cohosh

Shade-loving perennial herb with deeply cleft, glossy leaves.  A tall spire of tiny white flowers blooms in summer.  Prefers the moist, humus-rich soils of bottom land hardwood forests.  Another common name is "fairy candles" which refers to the bright spires of flowers that stand out in the deep shade where this plant naturally occurs.
