Asked September 27, 2019, 1:35 PM EDT

Please help me identify this weed that grows all over my property. It's stem is translucent & hollow. Very shallow-rooted. Opposite serrated leafs. It has fuzzy things on a tiny stem growing at the base of every leaf on the stem. Thank you!

Thank you for your question!

This looks like jewelweed, Impatiens capensis. Here is a link to a fairly comprehensive article written by a colleague in Wisconsin: https://wimastergardener.org/article/jewelweed-impatiens-capensis/
