Poke, Domestic (Phytolacca americana) seeds, organic
$2.95 – $59.00
Family: Pokeweed (Phytolaccaceae)
Hardy to Zones 4 to 9
(Pokeweed) Herbaceous perennial with thick, reddish stems, large, drooping leaves and plump purple berries. Native to the US, especially the southern states. A handsome weed much appreciated by birds, as the berries occur in large pendant clusters, very fruity. Therefore, one finds a lot of poke growing along fence lines where birds perch. Young shoots are considered to be an edible delicacy. Traditional usage (TWM): lymphatic. Low dose botanical. Plant prefers to grow in full sun and is not particular about soil or water–freely volunteers in old gardens, fields, fencerows. Slow germ is typical. Sow seeds in fall or early spring. 60 days cold/moist conditioning may speed germination. I’ve planted rows of this stuff in the field and given up after some time, re-tilled and planted a different crop, only to have the poke come up among the new plants, weeks later.
