  • Appearance: White baneberry is a perennial herbaceous plant that typically grows between 1 and 2 feet tall. It has compound leaves with toothed leaflets, similar to red baneberry. The plant produces unique white berries that resemble small, round eyeballs with a black dot in the center. These distinctive berries give the plant its common name, "doll's eyes."
  • Habitat and Range: White baneberry is native to eastern North America and can be found in cool, moist woodland habitats. It prefers shaded areas with rich, well-drained soil. White baneberry is distributed across a range of eastern states in the United States and into southeastern Canada.
  • Toxicity: Similar to red baneberry, all parts of the white baneberry plant, including the berries, contain toxic compounds. The berries contain cardiogenic toxins that can cause gastrointestinal distress and cardiac symptoms if ingested. The toxicity of white baneberry is why it is essential to avoid consuming any part of the plant.
  • Wildlife Value: While the berries of white baneberry are toxic to humans and many animals, they are consumed by some bird species, such as thrushes, which are resistant to the plant's toxins. The berries provide a food source for these birds and play a role in seed dispersal. The bright white color of the berries can also attract attention from other animals, but the toxicity serves as a deterrent against consumption.
  • Conservation Status: White baneberry is not considered a threatened or endangered species. However, its populations can be affected by habitat loss and disturbance. Preservation of its native woodland habitats is important for the continued existence of white baneberry
  • Similar to red baneberry, caution should be exercised when encountering white baneberry due to its toxic nature. The berries should never be ingested, and it's advisable to avoid handling the plant without protective gloves to prevent accidental contact with the toxins.

Care Instructions

Different plants have different watering needs. Check the soil moisture by inserting your finger about an inch into the soil. If it feels dry, water the plant until the water drains from the bottom of the pot. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot.
