Please Help Me Identify These Plants

June 23rd, 2009 Posted in Uncategorized

And one bird.  I’m describing something for this proposal I’m working on and I’d like to identify at least a few of these plants.  I can’t believe how few growing things I can name.  Dogwoods and gingkos, that’s about it. I even think that some of these are the same type of plant over and over. Thank you in advance!























And this bird.

    plant #1 looks like its in the current family.

    plant #2 looks like Oxalis. We have a variety with yellow flowers that grows in our yard.

    Plant #5 is, I believe, the leaves of the wild violet. I have them all over my garden.

    I think plant 2 is just a variety of clover, and plant 3 looks like St. Augustine grass.

    Thanks everyone!! I think you guys are right and based on these and other suggestions I’m identifying some of the plants as skunk current, wood-sorrel (aka okalis) crab grass and wild violet.

    I think I’m going to say clover too, just because I saw a lot of variations and I think some might be that too.

    You guys are great!!!!!

    Number 2 looks like clover. Not sure about the rest. My yard seems to be largely made of Number 3 which is likely just some kind of weed!

    3 is crab grass! Someone suggested that and I checked pictures and I agree.

    #2- clover
    #3- crab grass
    #5 – violet
    All the rest look like weeds to me

    1. Looks like a maple sprout. If its stem is woody, it might be a little tree, maybe the weedy Manitoba Maple.

    2. I have it in my garden as a weed and mine make tiny yellow flowers when I let it get big enough. I think it is the wrong leaf for violets and the wrong flower for clover.

    3. Grass.

    5. Some kind of mullein, perhaps?

    11. Some kind of sumac, maybe?

    The bird might be a sparrow – they come in lots of varieties.

    You know you’re a New Yorker if you need someone else to identify what grass looks like.

    That bird looked kind of funny.

    Hahaha. I know, it’s insane that I can’t identify even the most basic plant life.
