You will receive a seed packet containing 1 gram or a minimum of 75 fresh Poke Berry seeds. Phytolacca Americana, commonly known as poke berries, polk berries, poleberry, pokeweed, poke, pokesalad, pigeonberry and inkberry is a perennial herb in the Phytolaccaceae family. Native to the Eastern United States, Poke berries have a tough coating on their seeds allowing them to remain viable for up to 40 years! Many pollinators including bees, hummingbirds, and the Giant Lepard Moth love the white flowers that bloom in spring. While scientists investigate its potential use in cancer treatment it is important to note that all parts of the Poke Berry plant are poisonous to humans. Poke berries can be used as a natural dye for fabrics and were even used as ink to write letters during the civil war. This historically significant plant is easy to grow and supports local ecosystems allowing animals to eat its berries long after many other plants have gone dormant for the winter. Poke Berries will be a lovely addition to your outdoor space and you can feel good about helping local wildlife!
