Black snakeroot is a traditional medicine of Indians and other herbalists. It has been used to treat a great many physical and mental conditions. These days, it is mostly used as a dietary supplement for women's complaints. Hmmm, that's ambiguous too. This cohosh only helps, if at all, with physical issues.
Black snakeroot is also planted in flower gardens. Now there's a use that will improve our moods! figuring out the best way to capture the delicate spirit of this plant was some fun photography too. It was only when I tried the backlit idea shown on the wildflower page that I thought I was being there. In this stuff it's about being in the plant's mood. Then ultimately it will be the other way around.
