Growing in bushy clumps, Red Baneberry is an upright woodland perennial, between one and three feet high, with attractive compound leaves. A single, elegant white flower globe rises above the plant in spring. Bright red berries set against deep green foliage are a showpiece in summer and persist into the fall. The berries, which are poisonous to humans, are consumed by numerous woodland birds and small mammals. In late fall the leaves fade from green to yellow, with veins outlined in darker green. Red Baneberry is a wonderful plant for season-long color and interest in the shade garden. Plants will grow in full shade, but are at their best in light to moderate shade.
