Where To Plant Baneberry Doll Eye

It pairs well with other shade plants, like ferns, hostas, and astilbes. Its white or pink flowers can be paired with plants with contrasting foliage, such as dark green or burgundy-colored leaves. They are toxic if ingested, so it's best to avoid planting them where children or pets might be tempted to eat them and prune them as needed.

They are a relatively large flowering plant that is native to North America, including the Midwestern and Eastern regions of the United States, as well as Eastern Canada. As the name implies, this flowering plant grows from 1½ to 2 feet tall and 3 feet wide, and its white and blackberries closely resemble the appearance of dolls' eyes. Various alternate names, including necklace weed and white cohosh, also know this plant. Its berries, which ripen in summer, contain cardiogenic toxins that are harmless to birds, but both plant and berries are poisonous to humans if consumed.


This plant is of the genus Actaea and the family Ranunculaceae. It prefers clay-like soil and is typically found in deciduous, wooded areas. They are herbaceous perennials with compound, toothed, bipinnate leaves.

Its stems are thick and reddish, with white flowers atop them. The flowers bloom into a dense springtime raceme and grow about 10 cm long. This unique species is easy to grow and is typically cultivated in wildflowers and more traditional gardens as an ornamental flowering plant.
