Another plant ID request

Post  Megan on 6/8/2010, 6:22 pm

I have four squares planted with summer savory adjacent to my beans, and I am pretty sure that almost no savory is coming up. But what is this stuff? The stem is quite thick and while I don't think it's a true succulent, it sort of looks like one. I have seen it before in my yard and I'm fairly sure it's a weed.... but could it possibly be portulaca? (I have never planted that.) Also the other weedy-looking things in those squares, is there a name for those?





The one in my fingers below, possibly this one is summer savory? I have never actually seen the plant before.


More mystery plants, probably weeds?


Thanks in advance for any help! Very Happy

Megan,
The plant above your hand to the left looks like Broadleaf Plantain. And that plant you think could be portulaca may just be just Common Purslane (a.k.a. pigweed). It's actually in the same family as portulaca! Both of those are weeds.

I'm not sure about the summer savory. All the picture you find on the Net are full grown, so it's hard to say. If you pinch a leaf does it smell like savory?

Not sure about the plants in the lower picture. The one in the middle looks sort of like a tree seedling??

Doh. I meant to say purslane! Smile Though from what I hear, purslane is edible. I have always wanted to try it, just never had a positive ID on it.

I have no idea what savory smells like, unfortunately! And yes, that one in the lower picture does look like a tree to me also. I have a maple on one side (definitely not that) and a something-or-other on the other side, will have to look at that one more closely.

I guess it is time for me to yank and replant savory and maybe radishes. That whole area is going to get trampled by my squash, but I was hoping the savory would help out with my beans as a companion plant. Thanks!

Portulaca is delicious in salads, and it looks like that is what you might have. I grow some intentionally each year and then nurture any that pops up wild. I've never grown savory so have no idea what it looks like, but if you search a seed catalogue site, they might have pics of small plants, like what is often on the back of seed packages.

I'm a big savory fan, both winter and summer, and if you rub the leaves, it will be VERY pungent, strong and aromatic. It's a heavily scented, medicinal smelling herb.
