with tiny purple flowers. This shot is looking down on the plant which is only a couple inches tall.
Looks like a Veronica species (Speedwell), V. persica is one found in Florida but there are many similar plants.
Hi Baa, I have looked at lots of pictures...Lots look similar except for the flower. All of the ones in my yard have the lower 'lip' (I don't know the word...fall?) and none of the pictures I've seen do. Also the leaves on these plants are thicker than normal but not succulent thick. I really appreciate you taking the time to look for all my unknown weeds!!
It looks like it has square stems, which leads me to think it's a mint. I want to say it's Micromeria brownii. It likes moist soils (not standing water, though) and full sun. You can harvest the leaves of M. brownii and make a wonderful herbal tea. You can also chew on the fresh leaves to freshen your breath.
You could be right there Butterfly!
Yep, she's one smart cookie when it comes to Florida natives...and the not so natives too! ;-)
Nice try darlin'...the furthest you get to go is riding shotgun!! LOL
