Poke Grows in the North
Why do you say that Poke grows in the Southern USA? I'm growing it in my garden in Massachusetts, and it is growing all over the place around here. Why not say the truth, that it grows everywhere in the United States of America.

It is a very invasive plant that will grow just about anywhere. It is just prominent in the South. It will get into everything, and spread 4 fold the next year. It is often mentioned as something from the South because it is a bit of an annoyance to most from there. (It is incredibly invasive in the South.)
