Goose grass

Goosegrass (Gallium aparine) is also known as 'cleavers' or 'stickyweed'. It is a common plant that can be found climbing over hedges and at the edge of woodland. The stems, leaves, and seeds of this plant have numerous down-turned prickles that stick to clothing and animal fur. Although the plant is edible, it is not suitable for fluffy rabbits, such as Angoras because the leaves, stems, and seeds get caught in the fur causing mats. It is not an easy plant to handle. It often grows among nettles so there is a risk of being stung as well as have your clothes covered in sticky seeds.
