The Blue Cohosh is just beginning to bloom. This is from last Friday.

Correction: This is Caulophyllum giganteum or Giant Blue Cohosh. (Thanks to Mike Whittemore for the ID.)

Hello! great picture here! I think this is one of the most confused species out there. I originally thought it was blue cohosh as well, but blue cohosh has green pedals versus purple. I believe this is a variation called giant blue cohosh (caulophyllum giganteum). Google it and check it out! :)
