Baneberry (Actaea Spicata) is a flowering perennial plant native to Europe and Western Asia. It is relative of the buttercups, same as Anemone Hepatica, yesterday’s design.
The plant has toothed compound leaves, long and wide. The flowers bloom in erect racemes and have 4-6 white sepals which turn into black berries in the autumn. These berries are highly poisonous, so be aware. Even though they do no harm the birds, to humans they are deadly.
