Collection No. 13010: D. Smith, F. Leist, J. Baxter, L. Webb, R. Truitt; flowering, 11-100 plants, woodland (near edge of roadcut), c. 10cm high
One of the very persistent weeds; but since mostly through by July not too much of a problem. I do try to get them before they are able to violently broadcast their seeds at your first touch; but it's hard to keep up with this prolific species. Gratifying, though, to learn that they are native.
This plant surrounded the bluebells near my yard. As I touched the plants, their dried seed pods popped off in all directions.
This small annual was blooming a month ago, but most now have ripe seed pods that give the plant its other common name, Popweed.
