Description
 It's the blue-grey sheen of its leaves that give 'Misty Blue' white baneberry its garden value throughout the growing season. Add to that the graceful racemes of white flowers in the late spring,  followed by clusters of white berries on bright magenta stems in mid summer for a shade plant that's never boring.

There are over 35 different species of bugbane or Actaea, spanning Europe, Asia, and North America. They're generally woodland plants, happiest in dappled shade and cool, consistently moist soil. Most form mounds of toothed leaves and then in mid-summer send up spikes of tightly packed flowers, often followed by conspicuous berries.
NOTE: Berries are poisonous to people and rabbits; harmless to birds and butterflies.
