Phytolacca americana 'Silberstein'

Phytolacca americana 'Silberstein'
Common name variegated American pokeweed; speckled poke
Family phytolaccaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z5-10)
Size 4'
Light sun-part shade

Bright-speckled variation of this common weed (see my weed page for the plain species). Out of many seedlings started last year, just one survived, and hasn't attained much stature yet. Which is good, because it gives me some time to ponder where to place this pretty weed.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
