Sirhowy Hill Woodlands

Scientific name: Stellaria graminea

Lesser Stitchwort

The flowers have long, narrow white petals alternating with long green sepals. The leaves are un-stalked and narrow. The flowers are much smaller than greater stitchwort and the stalks are smooth. The flower looks like it has ten petals but actually it has only five, which are lobed almost until the base.
