Red Baneberry
Actaea rubra









Red Baneberry (Actaea rubra) is a perennial native to rich deciduous woods. Somewhat "bushy" in form, it can reach a height of 2 feet. Clusters of small white flowers appear in May, followed by clusters of shiny red berries in July.

Attractive throughout the growing season, Red Baneberries are especially showy when in fruit. They thrive in moist, fertile soil in light to heavy shade and are excellent specimen plants in shade and woodland wildflower gardens.

As all parts of the plant are poisonous, Red Baneberry is not be a good plant to use where young children might be tempted to eat the "appealing" red berries.
