Common Chickweed, found throughout the country. It’s a winter annual, which is a low-growing, succulent   weed that often spreads out in extensive mats. It may survive the summer months in shady, cool areas that offer sufficient moisture. Its true leaves are broader, opposite, and yellow green, mature leaves are ovate and opposite on the stem and most leaves are attached to the stem by hairy petioles, but some upper leaves do lack petioles. Its flowers are small but showy with five deeply cut white petals. The stems are trailing, weak, and slender, with a line of hairs down the side.
