What is Phytolacca american

Phytolacca americana, Iink berry or Pokeweed (scientific name:Phytolacca americana) is a large, cold-resistant perennial plant of the family Phytolaccaaceae that has been naturalized from North America. The branches are red and feathery. The leaves are green and oblong. This plant produces white (or similar) flowers in an inflorescence that extends from the flower stems during the rainy season and summer. It actually has no petals, but five calyx petals, like a five-petal flower. It is called "ink berry" in the U.S. because it produces drooping dark red-purple berries after flowering, and crimson dye can be obtained from the berries. It has medicinal properties, but it is particularly toxic to the roots. The one sold in supermarkets as mountain burdock is different.
