Actea pachypoda, or white baneberry, is a woodland perennial native to the Eastern and Mid-Western United States. White Baneberry grows in well-drained, humus rich soils of deciduous forests in full to part shade. Small clusters of white flowers top stems in spring, followed by beautiful, yet poisonous, white berries. Birds consume the berries. Plant with other woodland plants such as wild ginger and trilliums.
