WEEKEND FUN: Name these plants

Here’s another chance to test your knowledge of our local plants on Weekend Fun.  In this photo, there are two different plants – the large one in the center and two smaller ones of the same variety, located on both sides of the big one.

They are well-known herbs with very useful properties, growing in some one’s backyard.

Can you name both and what they’re used for?

If you only know the name of one, share it with us.

Let’s have some good, clean, informative fun and an enjoyable weekend!

    I recognized the rosemary bushm, I never say that plant when I was growning up in Dominica. Is that something that was introduced recently, or is it more popular in certain areas?

    They’re two species in the Genus Lamiaceae. They may be the Thymus serpyllum and the Thymus praecox. Commonly called thyme. Used as a cullinary seasoning.

    The big one that looks like prickles is surely a Rosemary and the small one looks like the small leaves Thyme. Both CAN bd used to make bush tea. The Thyme is used to flavour fish dishes. The Rosemary is widely used to cook meat in Europe, either baked or grilled. Hmmmh enjoy!!

    The one in the center is the Rosemary plant, used for medicinal and cooking purposes. The other 2 (one on the left the onther on the right) are the same large leaf thyme or in creole “gros diten”. This too is used for cooking and in teas especially for people with bronchial/asthma problem.

    If I’m not mistaken that looks like ROSEMARY & MINT. ROSEMARY is used as a seasoning in foods and also as a tea and mint is used to make tea.

    The big one :) it is ROSEMARY – good tea bitter but you adjust to the taste. Put in a cacoa tea this is good for brain. It is a blood thinner – Period pain reliever -it works. Used to season meat.

    The small one looks like mint – we all know mint tea.
