The berries have a single black dot which resembles an old-fashioned china-doll-like eye. Because the foliage is toxic, it is resistant to most mammalian herbivores, however, it is harmless to birds, its main seed distributor.
Baneberry should be grown in dappled to partial shade in a rich, organic, moist soil. Can be grown in sunnier locations if the roots are kept cool and have adequate water.
