Definately poeweed, I currently live in Tennessee and it is all over my yard. If you yabk it, make sure you dig out the whole root! Otherwise you too will have a pokeweed jungle. Darn stuff is worse than the bamboo we had growing up in Upstate NY.
SOrry for the late reply, I am new to this thread & going to be moving to just North of the border in Broome County, NY at end of summer. I figured I would check this thread out too, since there's a lot of rural up that way: Montrose, etc north of Scranton. Anybody here around that way?
