Goosegrass

Goosegrass ( Galium aparine) is among the plants to look for because it is safe and popular with some owners. It is a common plant that can be found climbing over hedges and at the edge of woodland. The stems and leaves of this plant have numerous down-turned prickles that stick to clothing and animal fur. It is an edible plant for rabbits but is an acquired taste. It is not suitable for fluffy rabbits, such as Angoras because the leaves, stems, and seeds get caught in the fur. Abundant small plants appear early in the season and can be picked as forage although they may be mixed with nettles that can make them difficult to pick.
