Similarly, how can you tell if a dandelion is edible?
Identifying dandelion: For such a common weed, dandelion is easy to misidentify. Many look-alike plants have similar leaves, but dandelion leaves are hairless. They generally have toothed edges that gave the plant its French name, “dent de lion.” Leaves and hollow flower stems grow directly from the rootstock.
Beside above, which Purslane is edible? The leaves, stems, flowers, and seeds of the purslane plant are all edible, but I've only eaten the stems and leaves myself. They have a slightly sour edge (not as strong as wood sorrel) and a hint of a mucilaginous quality (not as strong as mallows). Purslane is terrific as part of a salad.
Correspondingly, is common mallow edible?
The common mallow is part of the large family of Malvaceae plants that include cotton, okra and hibiscus. It is an edible plant that has been used for medicinal care as well as food. The fruits are round and have cheese-like wedges which give the common mallow its nickname, cheese plant.
How do you kill Virginia Buttonweed?
First, if you have a large area of infestation I would suggest using glyphosate, a systemic nonselective herbicide that will kill roots and all. Know that anything you spray will be affected so spray carefully. Wait two weeks and spray again. Then seed the area with turf-type fescue or rye grass for the winter.
