White Baneberry (Actaea pachypoda) is a woodland plant that is intresting from spring flowering through fall with the "doll's eyes" berries. For this reason it is also popular for gardens. The common name "baneberry" results from the poisonous nature of the white berries. The alternate name "dolls eyes" comes from the appearance of the white berries with a small black dot. All parts of the plant are poisonous. Even the foliage should not be touched. There is a related species called Red Baneberry.
