Hedge Bedstraw
 

 

With the exception of Cleavers, Hedge Bedstraw is probably the most vigorous member of the Bedstraw family, scrambling up to a height of up to 1½ metres. In common with other bedstraws it has clusters of small 4-petalled flowers and leaves (slightly pointed) in whorls around the stems (which in this case are square). The white flowers can be seen from early summer to early autumn. Very common, especially in the south, mainly in hedge banks and in rough grassy places and scrub.
