Mouse-ear Chickweed Cerastiumvulgatum

Mouse-ear Chickweed is a perennial weed and is very common on lawns throughout in the UK. It can be very annoying as it can spread very rapidly, smothering grass in the process. It can easily survive close mowing but can be controlled with selective herbicides. The small dark green leaves are distinctive in that they are very hairy

The flowers are very small and upright and white in colour appearing from late spring up to autumn.
