Also called white baneberry, actaea is native to eastern woods. It naturally occurs in deep woods, north-facing wooded slopes. The berries ripen over the summer, turning into a fruit that persists on the plant until frost. This white, shiny berry with a prominent dark dot is the source of its other common name. Berries are very poisonous.


Easily grown in  humus-rich, medium moisture, well-drained soil in part shade to full shade. Self-seeding may occur in optimum growing conditions where the berries fall to the ground. If naturalization is desired, berries may be picked and immediately planted into the ground as soon as they ripen in order to promote germination. Nursery grown not collected from the wild.
