Doll’s Eyes gets it name from the look of the seeds that are very white with a black spot, giving them the look of a doll’s eye. When happened upon in the woods, the candles of white flowers are a pleasure to behold. In the garden, you’ll need to plant in mesic soil, maybe slightly on the moist side to make sure that this plant really thrives. It seems that it can handle a fairly wide range of light exposure from shade to sun, with only west faces proving to be a detriment.
