Actaea pachypoda ‘Misty Blue’   

This hybrid of a favorite native woodland perennial was introduced by our friends at Mt. Cuba Center in Delaware. It has clumps of finely cut, soft, bluish-green foliage and produces small clusters of white flowers in late spring, early summer. Flowering is followed by red pedicels producing large, white fruit in autumn, each with a distinctive black spot. This spot is the reason the berries are sometimes referred to as "doll's eyes". Grows 2-3' tall and wide.
