Maianthemum stellatum is a creeping rhizomatous perennial that is native to moist woods, slopes, prairies and meadows.  Each stem is topped in May-June by a 2-3″ long terminal raceme containing 6-15 white to greenish-white, 6-tepaled, star-shaped flowers. Flowers give way to fruits which mature from green with blue-black stripes to blackish red to black. Fruit is bitter but edible.
