Identify a Weed

Asked July 7, 2020, 5:51 PM EDT

This weed has been in flower gardens for a few years. It multiplies by the thousands. I have not been able to identify it. If you know what it is I would be very interested in finding out.

It is Canadian Clearweed (Pilea pumila). It does multiply! It has a very shallow root system and can be easily be pulled.

There are a couple of good apps for plant ID: iNaturalist and PlantNet. You might want to give them a try; it is kind of fun.
