This spring I found the most curious plant with flowers like fireworks. The White Baneberry is a common native plant to our area, enjoying moist acidic soils. I found this one on top of the hill at Spangler.
May it burst into a firework of fluffy white flowers.
August the fruits have fully formed and turned into the notorious white with black dots resembling dolls eyes, from which it is sometimes known.
All parts of this interesting flowering plant are poisonous!
Since 2015 we have been exploring and sharing all the amazing things we’ve found in nature.
