Pokeweed produces long viability seeds; they can last for up to two years in the soil. The entire pokeweed plant is considered toxic to mammals and humans; the plant's highest concentrated toxin region is located in the rootstalk. Be aware that the leaves, flowers, berries, and stems are also toxic, and this plant becomes more poisonous as it matures. Pokeweed can absorb through the skin, so it is recommended to wear gloves and be covered when handling this plant.

The sap from this plant can cause dermatitis for people with skin sensitivities. In addition to songbirds, there are a few varieties of smaller animals that seem immune to the toxins of the pokeweed plant. Raccoons, opossums, the white-footed mouse, and a few types of fox remain unaffected by the toxic berries of the American pokeweed. The stem of the pokeweed plant usually turns red as the plant matures, and it takes a few years for the root of the plant to grow strong enough to support the plant entirely.
