I can't recall if I asked about this one before, or not. *Blush*

Growing very hardily in early spring, northeastern Indiana. Growing in a fairly open garden area. Multiple spring freezes haven't affected it a bit.

Stems are angular and smooth. Entire plant is approx. 6" high x 12" wide.

Thanks.

I've checked that one, but it doesn't look like a match so far.

Leaves on mine are thin at attachment, then spread widely rounded to very nearly the tip -and the stems appear to be hairless.

Is it Galium? Maybe G. aparine?

Good try, Tee.

We do have those here, but their stems are bristly. For comparison, I checked on a patch just a bit ago, and they're prickly even when small.

True. They are edible if cooked. :)

Yep...one of those. *Blush* Its stems finally developed those irritating clingy hairs...it's gone now. Big Grin
Thank you!
