Blue Cohosh

Another amazing northeastern native Blue Cohosh (Caulophyllum thalictriodes) blooming here in my garden. The genus is made up of three very similar species, but this one is C. thalictroides, because its leaves resemble those of the beloved Thalictrum. Not only does it have such incredible flowers and foliage, but in the fall it produces vibrant blue berries. Hey ho, a real keeper!
