I love fall. It’s the season that clothes itself in the colors I like the most — reds, oranges, yellows, browns and greens. The fall foliage of the White Baneberry (Actaea pachypoda) is a good example.
According to plant i.d. resources I researched, the berries of both the White and the Red Baneberry (Actaea rubra) are poisonous; eating only a few can make one seriously ill. Eating a large amount can cause death. Seriously, however, they don’t taste very good so the likelihood of that seems very distant.
Note: White Baneberry (Actaea pachypoda) was formerly known as Actaea alba.
