Actaea pachypoda
Common Name: White Baneberry Family: Ranunculaceae (The Buttercup Family)

Actaea pachypoda
Zoom In Photo:

Low maintenance and long lived, white baneberry will form a sizable multi-stemmed clump of attractive, dissected foliage topped in early summer with small clusters of white flowers. By autumn the plant will develop white fruit with a single black dot on each base (hence the other common name 'doll's eyes) held on red peduncles (fruit/flower stems). A lovely and delicate woodlander and a perfect choice to create a quiet and relaxing vignette in the shade border.
