    Hello--


    A customer just came in with a plant:


    -sprawling (according to them, but the stem was semi woody, I imagine the plant was damaged and fell over)


    -growing in the shade under a dogwood tree


    -the flowers which were in bloom in early-mid August were small, white with a green center (this was described to me, I haven't seen the flower)


    The photos are the best I could get.

    Thanks! Everyone is always so helpful!

    aka 'pokeweed' VERY invasive and hard to get rid of - gotta dig it up and get all the roots.
