This is called American pokeweed.

Some people consider it a weed in the garden.
It is a native plant that is beneficial as a food source for at least 30 species of birds. Migratory birds eat the berries to fuel their southward flights.


Thanks. I will keep it. It is great with a beneficial plant appears on its own!
