It's the blue-grey sheen of its leaves that give 'Misty Blue' white baneberry its garden value throughout the growing season.

There are over 35 different species of bugbane or Actaea,
spanning Europe, Asia, and North America. They're generally woodland

Most form mounds of toothed leaves and then in mid-summer send up spikes
of tightly packed flowers, often followed by conspicuous berries.
Berries are poisonous to people and rabbits; harmless to birds and
