Identify Plant

Asked August 11, 2019, 5:03 PM EDT

Do you know what this plant is? Last fall I had put some seeds in this pot that were from rose hips I got from rose plants in Maine which is what I thought this was. However, after looking at pictures of rose plants from Maine, it does not look like the same roses plants. Thank you.

This looks like our native pokeweed, which wildlife, especially birds love to eat then 'deposit' seeds elsewhere.

Here is our page on it: https://www.extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/pokeweed
