Star Chickweed

Stellaria pubera


White, five petals so deeply notched they appear as 10 sepals. The star-shaped flowers of Star Chickweed inspired the common and Latin name for this flower. Native Americans used a stem and root tea with Yellow Lady’s Slipper to expel worms in children.


Rich woods and shaded bluffs from New York to Florida and west to Illinois.


Spotted growing near the road on top of Kennesaw Mountain.
