Cerastium glomeratum Thuill.

Clammy Chickweed

Cerastium glomeratum plant

Family - Caryophyllaceae

Habit - Annual forb.

Stems - Ascending to erect, to 30 cm, multiple from fibrous roots, sometimes branched, densely pubescent with glandular (especially toward the tip) and nonglandular hairs.

Cerastium glomeratum stem Stem.

Leaves - Opposite, simple, entire, sessile, 0.5-3.0 cm long, spatulate (some basal leaves) or elliptic to narrowly oblong-obovate, abruptly short-tapered to a minute, sharp point at the tip, pubescent, with prominent midrib below.

Cerastium glomeratum plant

Inflorescence - Dense, crowded terminal clusters or small panicles. Pedicels 1-3 mm long, 0.5-1.0 times as long as sepals, densely glandular-pubescent, usually longest in the first-opening flowers, erect to spreading at flowering and fruiting, 0.6 mm in diameter, elongating slightly in fruit. Bracts with herbaceous, green margins.

Flowers - Sepals 5, 3-5 mm long, lanceolate, green or occasionally reddish-tinged at the tip, angled or tapered to a sharply pointed tip, moderately to densely pubescent with glandular and nonglandular hairs, these extending past and somewhat obscuring the sepal tips. Petals 5 (rarely absent), 3-5 mm long, 0.7-1.2 times as long as the sepals, shallowly 2-lobed at the tip (to about 1/3 the total length), the veins usually not apparent, white, glabrous. Stamens 10. Filaments 3mm long, white, glabrous. Anthers whitish, 0.2 mm long, 3-lobed. Ovary sub-globose, green, glabrous, 1.5-2 mm long, with many ovules, placentation axile. Styles 5, white, 1.5 mm long.

Cerastium glomeratum flowers Flowers.

Cerastium glomeratum flowers2 Flowers.

Fruits - Cylindrical capsules 5.0-9.0 mm long, 1-2 times as long as the sepals, slightly curved. Seeds 0.5-0.6 mm wide, the surface tuberculate, brown.

Cerastium glomeratum fruit Fruit.

Flowering - March - July.

Habitat - Fields, pastures, prairies, lawns, open woods, roadsides, railroads.

Origin - Native to Europe.

Lookalikes - Several other species of Cerastium , and to a lesser extent, Stellaria . Differentiation requires attention to fine details.

Other info. - This common but often overlooked species is found in Missouri mostly south of the Missouri River. In the continental U.S. it occurs throughout most of the eastern the Pacific coastal states, but it apparently rare to absent in much of the Great Plains and mountain states. Many of the species of Cerastium appear very similar, and a confident determination requires experience and close attention to minute detail. One feature which sets this species apart from several others in the genus is its crowded inflorescences.

This species was long known as C. viscosum , a name which has been rejected due to ambiguity. A relatively rare form of the plant (sometimes called f. apetalum ) lacks petals. The plant has reportedly been used in Nepal to treat headaches and nosebleeds.
