Blue Cohosh (caulophyllum thalictroides) is a medium-tall woodland perennial in the Barberry family that is native to the hardwood deciduous forests of the eastern part of the United States. As its name implies, the Blue Cohosh plant provides deep blue berries preceded by clusters of cheerful yellow flowers among blue-green foliage. Flowers bloom from April through early summer, and the autumn foliage is bright gold.
The Blue Cohosh Plant Like Rich Organic Soils
Like other perennials native to woodland environments, Blue Cohosh thrives in soils rich in organic content. Those who have planted Blue Cohosh under canopies of hardwood trees to replicate its natural environment should allow some of the fallen leaves to remain on the ground in autumn so that they can decompose and contribute to the organic matter of the soil. Adding layers of organic mulch or compost in spring and autumn helps keep soils rich in nutrients, and as an added bonus, it will help protect the roots of the plant during times of temperature extremes.
The Blue Cohosh Plant Likes Water
Because this plant is native to areas where seasonal rainfall levels are high, consistent moisture is one of its major requirements. Be sure to add extra water during times of drought or if a heat wave dries out the soil. Blue Cohosh plant is also a good choice for planting near water features such as ponds and creeks as well as for low-lying parts of the property that receives rainwater runoff.
The Blue Cohosh Plant Grows Quickly
Because the Blue Cohosh plant grows quickly and reaches a mature height of between two to four feet, it's an excellent choice for homeowners who are trying to establish definition and height in a new landscape. Regular fertilizing in spring and autumn will help Blue Cohosh grow more quickly as well as promote strong and healthy development.
The Blue Cohosh Plant is Versatile in the Home Landscape
Blue cohosh performs just as well in naturalized parts of the home landscape as it does at the back of the shade border or in a large container on a patio or deck. No matter where it's planted, Blue Cohosh is a long-lived plant that provides homeowners with years of unique beauty. If planted in a container, the container should have sufficient organic matter, good drainage, and be placed in an area where the plant doesn't receive the harsh midday sun. Top-dressing the soil in the container with organic mulch or compost helps these plants thrive as well as protects their root systems by regulating soil temperatures.
In order to produce berries, the Blue Cohosh plant requires another plant close by to act as a pollinator, so it's best to have at least two of them. Because of their height and attractive flowers, berries, and foliage, Blue Cohosh plants make an excellent hedge when planted in a straight row about one foot apart.
