pokeweed- blessing or bane?
A friend gave me seeds from her pokeweed. It is a beautiful plant that I have never seen before. She told me that birds can reseed it easily, but it isn't hard to control, so that sounds ok, but I squeezed some berries as I started to plant it, saw the bright staining & began to think about the purple bird droppings from a mulberry tree we used to dread. Can I have some advice on this plant before I put in in my backyard garden?
