Baneberry has two varieties in Indiana; a red and a white. The difference is the color of the berries that poke out of long stalk giving this plant a common name of Doll's Eyes.
The berries are poisonous....my Audubon guide says very poisonous. So why would this poisonous plant be important? Well, it's a food for birds and a house for at least one moth. This plant is blooming now in Indiana.
