Cimifuga (sp?) seeds

ten_steps_ahead(6 NJ)October 11, 2008

This is my first year of growing this plant. I am in love with the fragrance of this flower! It is also known, I believe, as bugbane or snake root. I noticed what appear to be seed pods developing on the spent spikes this week. Does anyone have any info or tips on saving seeds from this plant or am I just better off waiting until it is larger and dividing it? Any advice will be appreciated.

TIA

Barbara

Does much better with dividing. Its rhizomes are thick, knotty and very dark, perfectly suited to dividing, spreading them around the garden, or giving them away to friends.
