Description

Pokeweed Plant is a tall, lush plant native to eastern, midwestern, and southern North America

Pokeweed, also commonly known as inkberry or dragon berries, is a tall, lush plant native to eastern, midwestern, and southern North America. Pokeweed can sometimes be found in parts of western North America and across Europe and Asia, where it has been naturalized.

 

Pokeweed can grow between 4 and 10 feet tall, and although the plant itself is relatively narrow, the leaves are broad. The plant is characterized by dark red stems, which set off the bright green foliage and large clusters of berries. The berries first appear in a green shade very close to the leaves, but they darken to a deep, appealing purple as they mature. Pokeweed does flower, but the white flowers are tiny. The plant also has a large taproot, more than four in. wide. Even if the plant is cut back, as long as the taproot remains, the plant will regrow the following season.

Pokeweed berries are an excellent food source for various birds

The berries are an excellent food source for various birds. Many people plant pokeweed in their yards or gardens to attract songbirds. This dense plant also proliferates and is quite hardy, and it will grow in the same area year after year, making an excellent border or natural barrier that needs little tending. Because it's so tall, this plant can also provide natural shade for other smaller, more delicate garden plants.

 

Pokeweed is an integral part of North American culture. The berries have been used as a natural dye for generations, and parts of the plant have been used in Native American herbal medicine. Recent research into the plant shows that it may also have applications in modern medicine. Pokeweed can also be used as a culinary ingredient. Many people in the southern regions of the United States boil the tender, young shoots of the pokeweed plant, which have not yet developed the toxicity of the rest of the plant, and use them in a salad.
