hi there!

I have a common weed, at least in my area, that I would like to identify. This one is in Montgomery County, Texas but is also seen in Fort Bend and I suspect other counties in this area.

Anyone want to take a gander?

Maybe Silene gallica, Common Catchfly / Small Flowered Catchfly.

Definitely not S. gallica, flowers are very, very tiny and white. Thanks, though!

yes, the seed pods are sticky almost like Caesar weed, but it's not that either. Sad I'm digging around on Google, too.

Now I'm looking into Silene antirrhina based on your Silene suggestion.

Alright, the person I'm helping out said it wasn't Silene antirrhina. Sad Leaves are alternate not opposite.

I know, it almost makes me want to grow it in the garden---almost. ;)

It grows in the ditches near our farm and smells very sweet on a still morning.
