Mouse-ear chickweed

Cerastium vulgatum

Seedlings of mouse-ear chickweed have two dark green seed leaves (cotyledons) on a very short stem. Cotyledons are round or slightly spoon-shaped, 1/8 inch (3 mm) long at most, and may have a few scattered white hairs, especially near the base. True leaves are opposite, more elongated, and covered with the soft white hairs typical of the mature plant. Seedlings grow erect for 2 or 3 inches (5 to 7.5 cm), then the stem branches, and the plant begins its tufted, creeping growth habit.
Spring growth from the previous year's plants takes the form of a tiny rosette without cotyledons.
