Poke Salat Annie?
We have this poke salat plant growing in several stands of our yard. For one the color is just exceptional and during these dull days of summers end, it is a joyous spot in the gardens. The birds also love to eat the ripe berries. There are times the plant will just be shaking like crazy due to the amount of birds on it. The migrating robins think we planted it just for them - we counted 48 alone in the backyard a couple days ago. So, if you would love this bright red stemmed plant with it's edible berries - just ask the birds to bring it to your yard, I'm sure they will be happy to do it! Where else do you see just vibrancy at the end of the season?
