Name of Weed

Need to identify a weed in our lawn at Cromwell. It is like a prostrate, creeping clover-like plant with small yellow flowers. Please tell me the name of it.

It is probably either Yellow Trefoil or Yellow Oxalis.

If it is the same thing I have in my lawn it is creeping buttercup. Very invasive, spreads, and really does "creep" over the ground. Hard to kill but do your best or it will take over!

It could be a creeping jenny, which is a small yellow weed similar to a buttercup, only with smaller petals, it is a pretty little weed, but rather invasive and spreads very quickly. Get rid.

What Kind of Herb?

This is a bush in by yard. It has a very strong smell & beautiful yellow flowers. I’d like to research it & find the best ways to consume it.

I hope some one can identify it.

Here’s the link to a picture of it:

That appears to be rue. It is not a culinary herb but rather a medicinal one. I would not eat it as it can have serious side effects.

Identify a Hanging Succulent Plant

The plant has bright green tubular, segmented leaves (modified stems?), similar to an Allocasuarina leaf although thicker and fleshier.
It exudes a milky, white sap when cut. No flowers observed over many years. The many segmented leaves trail for a couple of metres.

It sounds like it is a variety of Rhipsalis, perhaps Rhipsalis Species Pendent.

What Type of Plant Do I Have

I have a plant that was given to me, but I have no clue what it is. There are no flowers as of yet. The leaves are a medium to light green and some have dark red spots, some have white spots, and some have green spots. I did take pics of this plant.

What are the weeds in the yard that look like fuzzy balls. The kids pick them and blow them. How do you get rid of them?

ANSWERS

More information would make this easier to say for sure, though it sounds more like dandelions. However, there are several weeds that spread seeds in this fashion and we want to make sure we give you the right advice for dealing with the weeds in your yard.

This article will help determine if it's dandelions and how to control them: http://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/weeds/dandelion-control.htm
