Herbaceous dicot plants

Examples of herbaceous dicot

Pith autolysis, in the past studied only in herbaceous cultivated dicotyledonous plants, commonly occurs in wild plants. A survey of pith autolysis in wild plants was conducted in several different biomes in both North Carolina, USA and in Belgium. An objective method and a subjective method were developed and used to estimate the amount of pith autolysis in the internodes of bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) and the wild plant jewelweed (Impatiens capensis Meerb.) under experimental conditions. A ranking system also was used to quantify pith autolysis in other wild plants. In the field, a positive correlation was found between the rate of internode elongation and pith autolysis.

Injections of sucrose solution were found to reduce the amount of pith autolysis developed in the upper internodes of jewelweed when compared to injections of control solution. Extracts from the nodal tissues of jewelweed increased the amount of pith autolysis developed by both jewelweed in the field and bean in the greenhouse. This increase in pith autolysis may be due to a principle present in the jewelweed nodes that signals or causes the supertending internodes to become hollow.

Would there be guides for all the plants or broken down by plant types: trees, grasses, woody perennials, herbaceous perennials, etc?
How technical would it be? Would it be user friendly? I like the challenge and looking up things like leaf shapes and technical terminology of plant structure, but I see this could be a stumbling block for many.
Isn't it more fun to ask the CL community, get a name for your mystery plant, and then continue your research.

DALY: Use care when planting around septic drainfields  — Gwinnettdailypost.com
Shallow rooted annual and perennial herbaceous plants can be planted closer to the drain fields since they do not have invasive roots. Turfgrass can be grown over the drain field and is beneficial since it helps hold the soil in place.
