Re: Herb ID


Are you sure it's an herb? It kind of looks like an asparagus fern to me. They are just a decorative plant.

Re: Herb ID


Did you break off a few leaves & smell it? Asparagus fern may be less delicate, but I wondered if it's an herb, also.

Re: Herb ID


Maybe Sweet Annie Herb aka Wormwood? Do you ever have malaria or dysentery?

i only put this on for a photo further down the page. If it's on WebMD, I'd be cautious

Re: Herb ID


If you think that's the herb, here's a better site. Personally, I wouldn't try it at all due to the side-effects & would wear gloves to manipulate it. But, that's me.

Re: Herb ID


Break off a piece and smell it. Looks a bit like citronella maybe?
