We need clear pictures of the flowers.

I have a wild coreopsis with that whorled leaf pattern, but... the branching flowering stems are different.

The flowers are tiny, a couple of millimeters. 4 greenish petals and (with magnification) yellow stamens.

From a bit of research, it looks like some species of Galium

And now I've learned that my sweet woodruff is a cousin to those nasty burrs that keep popping up in my flowerbeds. Thank You!

Yes, definitely some kind of Gallium. Thank You!
