Actaea pachypoda

  • Primarily cultivated in woodland and shade gardens for its attractive white berries and astilbe-like foliage.
  • It naturally occurs in deep woods, north-facing wooded slopes, bluff bases and ravines.
  • Tiny white flowers appear in spring in short, oblong terminal clusters atop long greenish stems rising above the foliage.
  • Flowering stems thicken after bloom and turn an attractive red as pea-sized white berries develop in summer in elongated clusters.
