American pokeweed looks out of place in Skopelos and is an alien species, probably introduced as a garden flower, which has escaped and naturalised in the streets of Skopleos and on waste ground outside the town.

Native Americans extracted dye from the deep purple berries and used pokeweed as a source of medicine and even a food source, but all parts of the plant contain deadly poison.
