|19||Cohosh, Black||Ranunculaceae||Cimicifuga racemosa (dg fo pf wp)||2013-04-26 00:00:00||208 each seeds in||plant||Sow in fall for germination in first or second spring, or give 3 months warm followed by 3 months cold followed by warm again. If this scenario is followed, germ then occurs in warm soil in 1-2 weeks. Work seedlings up in pots in the shadehouse for a year or two before transplanting out. A long-lived plant, development is slow at first, but given adequate compost and moisture during the growing season, monumental individuals can eventually be achieved.||Plant prefers edge of forest or shade garden. Black Cohosh withstands more shade than most forest-dependent plants, and if the seedlings are worked up for several years until they are quite large, then you can even plant it in the open garden with good results.||full shade||100 each||(Recently re-classified as Actaea racemosa*)
Perennial, native to the Eastern Forest biome in the US. Hardy to all temperate zones. One of the best and most robust of herbal landscape plants. Striking foliage and tall white racemes.

|42||Khella; Toothpick Plant||Apiaceae||Ammi visnaga (dg fo pf wp)||Sow in spring.||110||Plant prefers full sun, regular watering, average soil.||full sun||moist||300 each||Native to the Mediterranean. Bears astoundingly long-lasting white umbels, as big as saucers, like a Queen Anne's Lace on steroids. Of course as a certified organic farm we don't put these plants on steroids, and would be willing to testify before congress that we don't, the plants are just naturally large flowered. Tincture or tea of the seeds is a non-stimulating bronchial and vasodilator that is used for treatment of asthma and coronary arteriosclerosis.||Bronchiodilator, Ornamental, Vasodilator|

Gratifyingly easy germinator -- sow in spring and work up in pots before transplanting to the landscape. Mulch heavily to overwinter, unless you're in Santa Barbara...||full sun||well drained||20 each||Herbaceous perennial native to Manchuria. This is the official species.
One of the best circulation enhancing herbs. Known as a non-enervating stimulant, it improves blood flow to the extremities without compromising the adrenals. Helps move stuck blood as in atherosclerosis or menstrual woes. I went to a conference where a well-known practitioner of acupuncture said, "This is my favorite Chinese herb and everyone should be taking it." Although my opinion varies somewhat from this statement, still I consider Dan-shen to be an excellent herb for addressing poor circulation issues and also for prevention of stroke, even in individuals who are at high risk of stroke or who have already endured one of these frightening and often debilitating episodes.Finally, the herb itself is comely, and the roots, as shown in the photo I took for the webpage, look like veins, being bright red, and are an obvious signature of the herb's activity. Excellent choice for herb gardens throughout the temperate north and a show plant for sure.
