The Pokeberry Plant is an herbaceous perennial species excellent for filling expansive natural areas, reforestation, or restoration projects. It grows in full sunshine in the U.S.D.A. plant growing regions 4 through 8.
The Plant is a North American native species, specifically to the east coast and across the midwestern states.
Many ecologists use this fast-growing species to help restore the soil's quality after a fire, flood, or other natural disaster. It self-seeds and reproduces fast. The taproot can be up to 12" long and 4" wide, further assisting with erosion prevention.
Home gardeners with large properties primarily choose it to add color to natural areas, help stop wind gusts, and feed local birds.
Poke Plant Is Growing With Lush Green Foliage and Dark Berries
It grows about ten feet tall when it reaches maturity. Phytolacca Decandra plants grow fast. The exact growth rate depends on various factors, such as the amount of light, water, and other climatic factors. On average, it can take as little as three to 10 months for the Poke Plant to reach its full size.
Its leaves form large ovals and can reach up to eight inches in length and two inches in width. Its flowers are small, star-shaped, white, or pink, and its fruits are dark purple, berry-like, and form in large clusters that hang from burgundy stems.
The pokeberries are not fit for human consumption, but local songbirds will enjoy eating them.
Caring for Poke Plants
Caring for Phytolacca Decandra plants is simple--remember these are wild native species that rely only on Mother Nature in their native habitat. They are drought-tolerant, heat-tolerant, and disease-resistant.
All you must do is place the plants in well-draining soil and in a spot where they will receive full sunshine or at least eight hours of filtered light daily. They will be self-sufficient and take over from there.
