(P/1'-3')(SH) The stems and leaves of this attractive shade plant have a blue-gray tone. American Indian women drank an infusion made from the root two weeks before childbirth to promote a less painful delivery. Blue Cohosh is a powerful abortive so it should be taken under a physician's direction. It has also been used as a demulcent, anti-spasmodic, emmengagogue and diuretic.

Growing instructions: Plant bareroot medicinal perennials upright so that the crown (the part with a bud, opposite the roots) is in inch or so below the soil level. Water them in. If planting in spring, you should start to see growth in a week or two. If planting in fall, they will stay dormant until conditions are right in the spring. 

If you are unable to plant to bareroots right away, refrigerate them and keep them moist or plant in pots. 

Never freeze bareroots.
