A photographic collection and brief reference to help identify Wildflowers found in New York
Prickly is the word. Recurved prickly hairs make the plant clingy. Wrapped around other plants the stems make it hard to walk through a field full of bedstraw. Odd, I either stripped off the prckles when I pulled the stem off or I just picked a deviant.
Yep, deviant, look at the flower photo again. There's one flower with 5 petals. Normally there is only supposed to be 4 like the other flowers.A obnoxious weed in my fields.
Found: Fields roadsides, wood edges
Height: sprawling 3 feet
June - July bloom time
