Actaea pachypoda

White Baneberry - Doll's Eyes

White Baneberry is also called 'Doll's Eyes' because the small white berries end in a black dot making this native (and toxic) fruit resemble the staring eyes of old fashioned dolls.  The delicate white flower spikes appear above Astilbe-like foliage in spring, followed by the striking white fruit in summer.  The berries are poisonous so animals will not eat them.  Actaea pachypoda naturalizes easily in moist but well-drained woodlands.
