Cerastium sp. from Virginia in SC

Posted on |

This was a volunteer in a pot. I’m guessing it’s something weedy in the borage family, but can’t seem to land on an ID. The leaves are somewhat fuzzy.

Growing in suburban Charleston in filtered light.

Thanks for your help,

Hi Virginia,

it looks to me like mouse-ear chickweed, a species of Cerastium. A rather common weed related to chickweed.
