Continuing our tradition of introducing great selections of US native plants, we proudly present a Robert Hughes selection of our native Phytolacca americana. Phytolacca 'Sunny Side Up' makes a 6' tall stalk (shorter in full sun) adorned with bright golden, tobacco-sized leaves (brightest in full sun). Starting in late June (NC), the clumps are topped with sprays of tiny white flowers followed by dark purple berries...a stunning color combination. If you don't want lots of offspring, we recommend a horticultural circumcision before fruit drop.
