Bay Grasses Identification Key

Compound Leaves

Carefully count the number of leaves in each whorl on the stem in 2 or 3 places and then chose from the following:

Roughly Dividedccontail hornwort whorl leaves

Finely Dividedmyr whorl leaves

Each leaf is a bit different, and counting the number of leaves in a whorl is very difficult. Most whorls have four leaves, some 3. The leaves are finely dissected, with an overall appearance somewhat like a feather.

If you don't think your plant is represented above try going back a level and choosing again.
