Phytolacca americana, Pokeweed
Phytolacca americana Pokeweed or Inkweed
This traditional native American medicinal herb with its tiny pumpkin like seed heads makes an occasional appearance in the garden. The seeds ripen to black and are filled with inky coloured juice. It is a poisonous plant so should be handled with care.
