|This plant has small white flowers (half inch) growing in clusters at end of stems.|
I had the camera on super macro to show the leaf structure.
Suggestions have been Corn sperry and thyroptomene maisonneuve?-but
I can not find pictures of either?

|Is it this corn spurry?|

|Thryptomene are plants native to Australia, if that helps. Here are a couple of links for you to see if that might be it.|

I still can not find a picture that matches this plant.
The plants here are not branched, but that weed is branched.
Since these are easily pulled---I'll keep them until I find an identification.

|Well, it looks like we might have to solve this one with the process of elimination|

|Well, it's apparently not corn spurry or thryptomene then. But it must be a good flower and not a weed cuz if it was a weed, it would be hard to pull|

|How tall does it grow? Is it only blooming in white?|

|I just spent some time going through all the white wildflowers in Google image and did not find a single one that looked like yours Maybe you have a rare plant there?|
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.

|Do you want me to post your picture on some of the other gardening sites I belong to? Some of those people are really smart and might be able to tell you exactly what it is.|

|Totally wild guess here, but could it be some type of ranunculus? I can't see the leaves very well in your photo, but my initial thought was "water crowfoot" tho the flowers are a bit off.|

|Caroline, try this site and see if you think any of these are it|
Maybe the baby blue eyes?

|None of those look like it.|
It is the arrangement of the leaves in whorls which I am looking for as well as the white flowers.
Some of the flowers have the faintest hint of pink.
Yes, if you know of other forums, let's try there too.

|It sure is a pretty flower, whatever it is. Do you have a photo of the foliage you can show? The bloom reminds me of Oxalis but the stems remind me of another plant I've seen before and can't remember the name. |

|The plant I was thinking of is Anemone but I'm not sure it's the right one either. I have a hard time comparing photo's for identification but here's a link to pictures of Anemone canadensis for comparison:|

|The flowers look similar,but this plant has a very skimpy structure.|
Sep 23, 2011 2:08 PM CST
|Maybe something from the Dianthus Family? The way buds are arranged and the way they cluster together reminds me of a dianthus....|

|I think it might be this one Leptosiphon nuttallii http://wildflower.org/gallery/...|

|Thank you---that looks much like the plant.|
Mine is very skimpy, but that may be because it is in part shade.

|I want to bump this one up and see if any one has more ideas.
I think that it was more likely Mountain Phlox Linanthus Grandiflora ?
