Little herb unkown for me. Its development is on the rocks.
PS. - I thanks so much to my friend Ori (fragmen), from Israel, who has identificate this herb as Phytolacca.
Searching I suppose it Phytolacca decandra, syn. Phytolacca americana.

looks like inflorescence of Phytolacca. TFS Ori

Hallo Raimundo
This is really a striking herb and lovely presented photo. I have never seen something like this before, and must admit all the herbs I have seen in my lifetime are mainly green in colour. I have a "thing" about the colour purple, and this one caught my eye. Thanks for sharing this beautiful herb with purple stem, and lovely blossoms with us. I have added this photo to my theme with the title "My purple obsession”. This is very unique and not something we see very often. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards
