Fatoua villosa

Fatoua villosa

Common name hairy crabweed; mulberry weed
Family moraceae
Life cycle annual
Flowers pink
Size to 48"

Summer annual, common through most of the US, with serrated apple-green leaves, inconspicuous pink flowers, and hairy stems. This is one of those weeds that suddenly just popped up by the dozens, without an obvious mother plant to explain the proliferation. It takes one of its common names from the resemblance of small plants to mulberry seedlings

This is a weed in our garden
