Polygonum aviculare

Polygonum aviculare
prostrate knotweed

Common name prostrate knotweed
Family polygonaceae
Life cycle annual

Low-growing weed with slender leaves and tiny flowers in the leaf axils. Not terribly widespread in our garden, and not typically a problem to control. But it looks messy, and has no redeeming qualities as far as I'm concerned.

This is a weed in our garden
