Aravaipa Plant Identification

Post by hippiepunkpirate » Feb 26 2018 4:09 pm

I'm trying to identify the green groundcover I saw at Aravaipa a couple weeks ago.

In this photo, the greenery on the righthand side: [ photo ]

In this photo, the groundcover in the immediate foreground (looks to be a different plant than the other photos because the leaves are rounded instead of pointy): [ photo ]

Any help is much appreciated!

Yup watercress. Exotic to Aravaipa but does grow there now.

Both photos link to the same picture but the ones along the creek look different than watercress.. the ones in the creek with the dudes hiking in it is watercress...

Never mind. I thought it looked like Canyon Ragweed, but the stem is wrong.

The big one in photo 2 looks like it is in the rhubarb family, but I don't have a good plant book by my side.

In the first photo it isn't solid watercress, there looks to be some poison ivy and one other "water plant I don't know the name" (edit: maybe some type of stinging nettle?) of mixed in.
