Cimicifuga racemosa has a mildly unpleasant, medicinal smell at close range, which gives it the common name "Bugbane". The drying seed heads of black cohosh stay attractive in the garden for many weeks. Its deeply cut leaves, which can be burgundy colored in certain varieties, add interest to American gardens. However, it is important to note that black cohosh is best suited to gardens where there is not excessive heat and drought, as it may die back in these conditions. Native to eastern North America, black cohosh is often found in small woodland openings and various woodland habitats. Its roots and rhizomes have long been used medicinally by Native Americans, who believed that extracts from these plant materials possess analgesic, sedative, and anti-inflammatory properties. Today, black cohosh preparations, such as tinctures or tablets made from dried materials, are commonly used to alleviate symptoms associated with menopause. However, medical evidence does not fully support or confirm the effectiveness of black cohosh for this use.
