Phytolacca decandra


Phytolacca decandra (Poke root) is an ornamental plant in the Phytolaccaceae family. These terms supplant the Algonquian term for the plant, pocan, meaning "blood red." Its informal name, poke root or poke weed, also descends from the Algonquin.

Medical uses[edit]

It is used in herbalism to stimulate the flow of lymph and is emetic in anything other than small doses.[1]
