Press Release from the Black Cohosh: “The report of my death was an exaggeration”

For the record, alive and well . . . the black cohosh!

It was reported recently on this blog that I “never grew” or, alternatively that I produced “one small leaf or shoot . . . not memorable enough to photograph.”

I am here to correct this vicious attack on my character.  As you can see, I am most certainly alive.

As are two of my fellow cohoshes.


We find it very interesting that someone who cares so little for our needs, including water and fertilizer, would be so quick to criticize us for failing to perform to expectations.  With a little research, you would know that we are “slow-growing perennials.”

We are most certainly here and with a little patience and time perhaps one day we will produce “fairy candle” flowers for you.

In the meantime, please be careful of jumping to conclusions on our behalf as your record in this regard is sincerely in question.


The Black Cohoshes of Your Garden
