Chickweed

Botanical name: Stellaria media

Description

Chickweed is a common winter annual weed that can grow through the warmer months. The leaves on Chickweed are small, paired, egg-shaped, pointed-tip on long, round, weak stems that have a line of hairs between the nodes.  Chickweed produces a single white flower on each stem. Chickweed reproduces by seed and through a fibrous root system. It has a creeping habit and is mainly found in moist and compacted soil areas, healthy lush lawns rarely get this weed established. Chickweed doesn’t recover from the loss of its foliage, so regular low mowing of lawns can help with the eradication. Can also be easily removed by hand.
