Cimicifuga racemosa-Black Snakeroot, Bugbane

Propagating Cimicifuga racemosa or Black Snakeroot or Bugbane can be done in the spring by digging up the healthy rhizomes sent out by the parent plant and you will notice the black roots hence the name. The plants need staking in windy locations because they could reach 8' in height and will thrive in a deep moist clay soil ranging from full sun to mostly shade with white blooms in June through August. It is semi evergreen and deer resistant, prune back in spring because seed heads are attractive through the winter.
