A sight for sore eyes... This Kentucky native perennial is known for its eye like berries and soft astilbe like foliage. Tiny flowers appear in spring in short, oblong terminal clusters atop long greenish stems rising above the foliage. The flowering stems thicken and turn red after they bloom. Pea-sized white berries appear in summer in elongated clusters. Actaea pachypoda enjoys part-shade to shade with well-draining soil and will grow upwards of 2 feet tall.
