Hedge Bedstraw (Galium mollugo)


,A sprawling and scrambling, medium to tall grassland perennial. In common with most other bedstraws, hedge bedstraw has a square stem with whorls of undivided leaves and clusters of small white four petalled flowers. Distinguishable from other similar bedstraws by its smooth stem and relatively broad leaves (no more than five times long as wide). Could be confused with Heath bedstraw but differs in habitat and the seeds (actually small dry fruit) differ.
