American pokeweed: The strange, tall perennial weed with berries birds love

by staff

It will self-seed and continue to spread in your garden if you do not control it. Most likely it got into your garden via a bird, as they eat the fruit. American pokeweed will be at home in many gardens, as it grows well in full sun to part-shade and in well-drained soils with average levels of moisture. I have found it growing strongly in sandy dry soils in Evanston.
