Greater stitchwort (Stellaria holostea)
Greater stitchwort (Stellaria holostea)
Greater stitchwort grows in woods, on roadside verges, in hedgerows and on grassy banks, flowering from April to June. In late spring, as the seed capsules ripen, they can frequently be heard making popping noises. The plant's name is derived from a herbal remedy using the plant, allegedly to cure that pain in the side known as 'stitch'. It is a very common plant.
