Common Chickweed Stellaria media

Common Chickweed is an annual weed but very rapidly growing weed. It is only really a problem in gappy lawns or freshly seeded areas as it cannot cope with close mowing. The plant has pairs of leaves which are fleshy with a consistency of lettuce. The flowers are small and white with 5 petals although it looks like 10 with the deep lobes. It flowers from February to November.
