Chickweed is mat forming with numerous branched stems. The leaves are opposite, smooth, oval to broadly elliptic in shape. Chickweed's upper leaves are sparsely hairy with long petiole. The stems have vertical lines of hairs.
Chickweed is a winter annual weed and a familiar site to Maryland lawns. It is recognizable by its white flowers in small clusters at the ends of its stems. The good news is Seneca Gardens can control Chickweed.
