Pokeweed Family

(Phytolaccaceae)

Pokeweed's can be identified by their droopy branches and big, untoothed leaves. The flowers of plants in the Pokeweed Family can be found opposite the leaves. These small five-petaled flowers grow in a delicate, slim, long raceme(long flower cluster with flowers growing around a central stalk). When these flowers die, they are replaced by deep purple berries and the stalk turns bright red.
