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.
