This plant is a striking, multi-stemmed woodland perennial known for it's soft, bluish-green, finely cut foliage. Flowers appear in May, followed by vivid, reddish pedicels which produce large, white fruit with a distinctive black dot in autumn, persisting for 4-6 weeks. Native birds love its fruit.

The species name of this plant pachypoda, literally means "big foot" because the plant has such large rhizomes or roots. Since baneberry lives in wooded areas with little sun, it needs these large roots to store nutrients.
