What weed or plant is this?

Postby boonkoh » Fri Apr 24, 2020 9:22 pm

Saw these growing at the edge of my grass lawn. Haven't seen these before, and a quick Google search doesn't yield anything familiar in terms of weeds.

Anyone know what they are?

I downloaded a rather good app the other day called PictureThis which tells you which plant is which when you take a photo of it.
There is a free trial but I've just let mine run as I'm useless with plants and it's been fun for the kids.

Thanks for the recommendation of PictureThis!

Tried it and it immediately got the right weed : purple deadnettle

Guessing it must be in gardens around me in the Nightingale Triangle, as it isn't a weed that was present in my lawn before.

Looks like some Roundup or Resolva spray will get rid of it easily.

Hello, I've heard that there is an app that can identify the name of a plant by its photo. This app is designed specifically for identifying plants. Unfortunately, I don't know the correct answer. To be honest, I only recently became interested in the topic of gardening. Before that, I studied, worked, and played computer games. But the quarantine has changed my mind and now I want to grow a lot of plants in my garden. Moreover, I fell in love with nature and began to walk more often. This has had a positive effect on my health. And if we talk about plants, I found the plant care and growing guide, where you can find a lot of useful info about plants. Perhaps you can find a photo of your plant there and find out its name.

I recommend the PistureThis app - but it's rather better at identifying tree types and with the millions of flora types it cannot id everything - still useful though - I found a tiny oak and an ash tree growing in my garden!
