Blue Cohosh

This is a purplish-brown flower that is hard to see right now. There are two leaves per plant and there will be a flower with 6 sepals, 6 petals that are hood-shaped.

Usually it grows from 1-3′ during the April-June months in moist woods. North Carolina is a great spot for this flower. Bees love it when it blooms as it is an early source of food.

Note: The seeds when they rupture out have been used as a coffee substitute.
