Description from Possibility Place: Similar in appearance to Doll’s Eyes (Actaea pachypoda), this is its shorter, redder little brother. Its foliage is a bit darker, and both foliage and flower clusters are more compact. The fruit will look like clusters of bright red grapes on the end of the stem.
