Common Cleavers
 

 

Common Cleavers is a type of Bedstraw, with tiny white flowers and leaves in a whorl around the stem. It clambers over nearby vegetation, often in large numbers forming dense clumps, both the stems and the fruit using small hooks to stick readily to animal fur and human clothing. Sometimes also known as Goosegrass.

In flower from late spring to early autumn, found mainly on hedges and disturbed or waste ground.
