My daily pictures – From flowers to fruits project – American pokeweed

Any fruit is first a flower.

 Starting from this reality I thought it was interesting to start a photography project entitled “From flowers to fruits and seeds”.

American pokeweed is a poisonous, herbaceous perennial plant in the pokeweed family Phytolaccaceae. The flowers are green to white, followed by purple to almost black berries which are a food source for songbirds. The plant contains tannins and saponins, which are not tolerated by the human body. However, after a particular preparation, which involves boiling or roasting, young leaves and shoots can be consumed.
