While pointing out Pokeweed during the Native Plant Walk on Sunday in DeKorte Park, Don Torino informed us that the perennial was the inspiration for the 1968 Tony Joe White tune, “Polk Salad Annie.” I looked it up on Youtube – great lyrics and a sound reminiscent of Creedence Clearwater Revival. Elvis would later cover the song.
