This plant is a weed growing in our yard very tiny and resilient. It quickly grows when there is some water. It smells and tastes minty spicy and I would like to cultivate it to add in my salad. Can you please identify it? Is it safe to eat?

|Are there any flowers on it? How tall is it growing? It looks like it could be Rosemary. You might take a sprig of it into a nursery to compare to samples there. I would not eat it though, until you are sure. You can go to the plant data base and look at more photos to compare. Rosemary gets purple flowers. |

|FWIW I don't think it's Rosemary. I don't know it though.|

|Not Rosemary. Would you like to hear 100's of stories about people dying from eating an unknown plant? Take it to your Univ. Extension, County agent. Please. Gene|
