Phytolacca americana ‘Sunny Side Up’ (Golden Pokeweed) [10 Seeds]

(1 customer review)


Germination Information: I recommend these seeds for experienced seed-starters only, because they may require some patience. The easiest approach is to sow the seeds (about 1/4″ deep) in fall to late winter, setting them outdoors in a spot protected from mice so they can get a chilling period and then germinate when conditions are right in spring.

If you sow after February, set the pot in a plastic bag in your refrigerator for about 2 months before moving it to a warm, bright place for germination. (Remove the bag if the pot will be exposed to any direct sun.)

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

‘Sunny Side Up’ pokeweed is a dramatically different foliage form of ordinary American pokeweed (Phytolacca americana), with bright yellow leaves. It does share some traits with the straight species, including stout, top-branching, reddish pink stems usually 5 to 7 feet tall; chains of white flowers that mature to black berries; and a tendency to self-sow. Though the species is a U.S. native, it is considered invasive in some areas. It also has some toxic properties if eaten. So please, do more research before buying if you have any concerns about these potential issues and do not order these seeds if you have any doubts about them. Full sun to partial shade. Zones 4 or 5 to 10.

Collected in September 2021. At least 10 seeds.
