Perfect for shade gardens, Actaea pachypoda (White Baneberry) is an herbaceous perennial forming clumps of finely divided, bright green foliage, enhanced by dense, globular clusters of small fluffy white flowers in late spring and early summer. Borne on conspicuous red stems which rise above the foliage, they give way to pea-sized white berries in summer. Each berry has a small purple spot (doll's eyes). Highly toxic, they are ignored by wildlife and persist until frost, providing ornamental interest over a long season.
