Artist's Description

A Wildflower of the North Carolina Mountains
The pink flowers of Pokeweed used to be white. They change color and turn into dark berries, sometimes called ink berries. It is best to avoid eating them. Birds can eat them because the seeds inside the berry remain intact as they pass through the bird. Those tiny seeds inside the berry are quite poisonous and can make humans very sick or even kill. The plants has played an important role in the history of the southern United States, used by the native Americans and since the pioneer days of yore. There are several festivals in The South that celebrate this plant. I think that it is a beloved pest. Interesting history and facts can be read at Pokeweed Wikipedia and Phytolacca americana Wikipedia. This photo was taken in the last days of Summer in late August near The Little Tennessee River in Macon County, North Carolina, USA in the small town of Franklin.
