WW. Whats the old saying? What doesn't kill you makes you stronger? Now far be it for me to ever test that, but more power to you.

pawprint licorice like

hey viceroy, ya that's a good ole saying...I like the ole saying: 'a bird in the hand, is better than 2 in the Buckbrush'! I'm just so happy Benj1 got the best ID for me, I couldn't remember seeing flowers on it, and I was hoping to get the pixs made... before all the leaves fall off of it.

Ok while on the ID subject....hehee, here is another one, that I think is quite interesting, again, I can't speak of flowers on this thing, it is not a shrub, but it is common, around here at least. Low in stature, only about 12-19" tall. I like how it branches, and it was the earliest of plants to finish seeding, & cenese, similar to the wild geranium maculatum as to the 'seeding time', I guess it was 'all done' around mid June. I can't even remember what the leaves looked like, but get this~~ he has a licorice smell, pungent even, and so did the leaves...when I crushed & rubbed the leaves it left a brownish sticky residue, that smelled heavenly! I've saved some seed, and broadcast more of the seed everywhere around here. I don't think it rises out of a rhizome, but perhaps it does on well established plants. The thing is when I search licorice, or anise, or fennel, the pixs I find on the internet don't compare.

Pix 027 shows the branching with some seed still attached.

Pix 028 shows the seed alittle better,

Pix 026 shows the whole plant~~easily as wide as he is tall~~.

Anyone, any ideas what this favorite of mine might be named?

Did it just smell heavenly? You didn't taste this one too, did you? ~wink~

(I hope not! ~smile~)

I presume you ruled out Galium lanceolatum, Wild Licorice. What about Osmorhiza longistylis, Sweetroot, or another member of that genus?

Thank you Benj1, for the most excellent ID of this Sweetroot! Osmorhiza longistylis I'm very happy to know his name.

PLANTS Profile for Osmorhiza longistylis (longstyle sweetroot) | USDA PLANTS

I submit another picture (pix 029) of the plant, which was taken 4-3-2012, but I wasn't sure it was the same plant as the dry seeded stalk I originally submitted, the name does help wonderfully to make the match! Pix 019 shows the plant just getting started.

You are welcome. I often wish I had an expert in my hip pocket so I could just say "What's that?" any time I see something unfamiliar. Like when I saw my first Strawberry Bush a few days ago. Took me some deep digging to find out what had such an odd fruit cluster.

We call those "deer candy" round here! You haven't seen the fruits on Strawberry bush/Hearts a bustin' before because the deer ate them first...

results of search

Interestingly it is a pretty little plant, also used as an 'eye wash' medicine, made from the root bark, or inner bark, or leaves.

Thank you Benji1, for the ID, ~~~if there is anything I can do for you, let me know.

At least I got that it was in the honeysuckle family! I am so glad it turned out to be native. It is quite attractive and I wouldn't mind having one - I am going to look around my local native plant nurseries and see if they have them since the USDA site shows NC as an area where they occur.

pawprint mmmmmmmm Strawberry Bush

I am hoping the deer around here have a nice snack like Strawberry Bush, whether I have found it or not! I'm going to keep a look out for that wonderful little plant, I will report back if I ever find one. It's funny to me that 'deer resistant' is a useful catch phrase, and naturally~~I want the other stuff~~ my 4 legged friends should have stuff they like to munch.

Thank you Turttle, for your very close suggestion into the Honeysuckle family, the sound experience, expertise, and tact use to help me, ~from everyone~ makes me happy. I'm so glad I joined up to Wildlife Gardeners-North America.

Here's a new one to identify.-p1140749.jpg
One popped up in my yard this year right in the middle of the miniature iris.

I found another while walking in the woods.
Here's a new one to identify.-p1140818.jpg

What could they be? Seems orchidlike!
