I can't tell just from that one picture. Can you send pictures of the leaves along with something to indicate size? Also a picture of the whole plant so I can see what shape it grows in? And a close up of the stem to see if the leaves are arranged alternately or opposite?

Hi Dawn,

I took some more pictures of the plant. I hope they are helpful.



The plant in your photo is Pokeweed, Phytolacca americana.
