Stellaria media is a biennial herb commonly seen everywhere across the country. Stems crawl on the ground, and the upper parts extend upward to 10-20cm in height, with soft hairs on one side. Leaves are ovate with acute tips, 1-2cm in length, with a bit of hair on lower parts, margins entire, occasionally wavy, and those leaves on lower legs have petioles, while those on upper parts do not. Flowers come in cymes; petals are white, 5 in number, each deeply cut in, shorter than sepals. Bloom time: January-December.
