Caulophyllum thalictroides / Blue Cohosh
Blue cohosh is a perennial herb found in rich, moist forests. It epitomizes the combination of aerial grace and below ground tenacity that characterizes much of the old growth forest flora. Bears bright cerulean blue fruits in panicles over its symmetrically whorled compound leaves.
In landscaping, blue cohosh is an attractive foliage plant and can be planted in masses in the forest garden understory. It spreads slowly by rhizomes to form colonies.
