Actaea pachypoda 'Misty Blue'


Actaea pachypoda 'Misty Blue' is a white baneberry with bluish foliage and white flowers followed by white fruit with a black dot.

For those who love unique foliage, the delicate white baneberry (Actaea pachypoda) has been updated for the 21st century with a fantastic powder blue selection. Low maintenance and long lived, 'Misty Blue' will form a sizable multi-stemmed clump of blue to about two feet topped in early summer with small clusters of fragrant, white flowers. By autumn the plant will develop white fruit with a single black dot on each base (hence the other common name doll's eyes) held on red peduncles (fruit/flower stems).
