White baneberry plants, known colloquially as doll’s eye plants, originate in forested areas of North America and regions of Europe. White baneberry is a type of wildflower that produces white blooms near the end of spring or start of summer. Then, toward the end of summer or beginnings of fall, the plant displays white berries with distinctive black spots, causing them to somewhat resemble the eye of a doll. Both the berries and the blooms sprout from vividly red stems. The plant will grow easily in a moist environment with a rich soil mixture that drains easily. It should be noted that the plant is poisonous, so children and animals should be kept away.
- Growing white baneberry doll’s eye plants is quite easy as they require little maintenance once they’ve flowered.
- These flowers should be planted in late autumn, although it may take some time for them to grow and fully mature.
- Surprisingly this plant is toxic, but it has to be consumed in large amounts to have any bad reactions.
“However, think twice before planting white baneberry if you have young children.”
