Strolling along mountain rivers in forests, you may encounter this perennial, Stellaria diversiflora; stems with no hairs crawling on the ground and the upper parts sloping upward to become 10-30cm in height. In a triangular-ovate shape, leaves are in opposite arrangement, with short hairs. Peduncles emerge from axils on the upperparts and set 1-1.5cm in diameter white flowers. Petals are five in number, cleft in halfway. Stamens are 10, and styles (pistils) number three in all. Bloom time: May-July.
