Botanical name: Polygonum heterophyllum


A low growing, sprawling annual or perennial herb with small oval leaves 5-10mm in length and a purple-white sheath around the base of each leaf. Wireweed flowers mainly in autumn and spring with flowers appearing in large numbers amongst the base of the leaves. Flowers develop in small clusters and are pink to white in colour with 5 petals about 2mm in length. The stems are sprawling, thin with many branches and are wiry in appearance, hence the common name of the weed.
