Pokeweed is a Florida native plant that pops up all over Hundred Acre Hollows in the spring. Pokeweed is a short-lived perennial that is winter dormant and blumes in the spring. The white flowers on the pokeweed turn into black or dark purple fruit. The berries on the pokeweed are commonly eaten by birds and are primarily pollinated by many different species of bees. Pokeweed is easily identified by its red to purple stems and groups of berries or flowers on the end of them.
