What is Actaea asiatic
Actaea asiatic (Scientific name: Actaea asiatic) is a perennial herb of the family Ranunculaceae, native to Japan, Korea and China. It is a wildflower that grows naturally in forests in the wilderness to deep mountains from Hokkaido to Kyushu. The stem leaves are 2-3 times 3-veined compound leaves, and the lobes are egg-shaped with serrations on the leaf margins. In early summer, many small white flowers grow from the tips of the flower stalks in a short raceme. The sepals fall off, leaving four to six spatulate petals and numerous stamens. Fruits are produced in autumn.
