Actaea are a genus that is part of the Ranunculaceae family, native to sub-tropical areas of Europe, Asia and North America and first described during the 17th century. The botanical name Actaea is said to mean ‘Baneberry’. This term refers to the poisonous berries found on many species. Take care when handling Actaea as the seed pods are highly toxic if ingested into your system.
Actaea are herbaceous perennials with distinct and sweetly scented blooms, flowering prolifically throughout late summer and autumn. Once the flowering period is over, Actaea will often leave behind numerous clusters of lime-green seed pods against a bare framework. They are best placed against a sloping bank or hillside or set within a wall side border.
