  Genus Actaea
 
     
 
These hardy perennials, known as Baneberries, are found wild in woodlands of eastern North America, Asia and Europe. They are compact, clump forming plants that grow up to 3 feet high and wide. Their green leaves are lobed, serrated and have long stalks. In early summer, small, white flowers are produced in fluffy, globular heads atop thin stems. These are followed by poisonous, round berries that may be white, red, or blue.

POTTING
These plants thrive in moist, leafy, humus-rich soil in a shady or partially shady spot. They are good for shady borders or woodland gardens.

PROPAGATION
Baneberries may be increased by sowing seeds in the fall or by division in the spring.




VARIETIES
