about the dye plant -
The pokeberry bush was a surprise addition to the garden several years ago. One October, I happen to be walking along the outskirts of the property and I happen upon the magenta berries. The color extracted from the pokeberry is deceiving, as it begins the same color as the fruit. As the dye bath progresses, it becomes a light pink & finally a blush. A wonderful neutral with hints of pink.
