an originating-in-Mediterranean Coast annual or biennial, grows wild
in places like vacant lots as tall as 20 centimeters. On-stem leaves
are hollow, with four ridges, and branch well at upper parts. Leaves
are of opposite phyllotaxis, in the shape of an obovate, with entire
margins. Radical leaves do not form rosettes. About 8mm in diameter,
many pink flowers set themselves on stem tips; corollas divide
themselves in five, and calyx lobes are about half as long as floral
tubes. Bloom time: June-July.
