Perenial. I did not plant. grows to 5ft. Has stem with white small flowers, they turn purple/red in the Fall.
It gets afternoon sun. we do not water it.

    The mockingbirds seem to enjoy the fruit, in the Autumn, so I keep them around… Plus, they are very photogenic!

    Some people eat the greens, but I’m afraid to try.

    The Constitution of the United States is said to have been written in pokeberry ink… Rich history in a plant seen as an undesirable weed by so many people.
