Growing and Maintenance Tips:


Baneberry should be grown in dappled to partial shade, in a rich, organic, moist soil. Can be grown in sunnier locations if the roots are kept cool and have adequate water. 

Additional Notes about White Baneberry:


Native to Ontario and much of eastern North America.

The white berries have a single, black dot which resembles an old-fashioned, china-doll-like eye. Because the foliage is toxic, it is resistant to most mammalian herbivores, however, it is harmless to birds, its main seed distributor.
